Fill Winter With Flowers
Shrug off the chill and lift your spirits with the beauty of winter’s most delicate flowers.
The casual observer may find little interest in the winter garden, but for those who like to look closer, there is much to appreciate and many wonders to admire. It is not like spring, when plants awaken and explode into a kaleidoscope of colours, nor is it like summer, when each bloom tries to outdo the other. Winter is slower, gentler, but equally as precious as seasons go, full of magical surprises and fragrance.
Crazy for Cockscomb!
We know what you’re thinking–what is cockscomb ?! Well, its not anything dirty, in fact, its actually a really pretty flower also known as “Brain Celosia” and its the perfect addition to bouquets and centerpieces. Cockscomb is available January-February, and July-October depending where you live and if it can be grown locally (It may be even more available than I just listed if you find a local growing source). It looks great in a fall bouquet and comes in yellow, light green, dark red, rusty orange, ivory and dark pink. Here are some examples of this brain-like velvety flower in action!

DID you KNOW?
Genus of 700-900 species of evergreen perennials, many epiphytic, with erect, sometimes climbing stems, from wet mountain forest in tropical and subtropical North and South America. Anthuriums are very attractive plants all year round. The flowering season stretches from spring to late summer.Unfortunately Anthuriums are not easy to grow and only the most popular one is reasonably tolerant of ordinary room conditions. All parts may cause mild stomach upset if ingested, and contact with the sap may irritate skin.

Anthuriums are really interesting and exotic looking, almost like plastic flowers. They make great cut flowers that last a long time.
Celosia is a small genus of edible and ornamental plants in the amaranth family, Amaranthaceae. The generic name is derived from the Greek word κηλος, meaning “burned,” and refers to the flame-like flower heads.
