December blooms and tips

by webdev

Potted plants and fresh cut flower bouquets may be rampantly circulating this season as gift-giving peaks for the holidays, but December has its own special blooms to offer for those who wish to take a more homegrown approach.

Naples Daily News recommends reaching for vines this month as you select your seasonal seeds.

With its oversized leaves and flowers, bleeding heart vine is reliable in variable lighting spots, reports the news source. Chalice vine sports eight-inch-long yellow bell-shaped flowers, and is well worth the initial effort to steer its woody stem in the right direction. The Daily News also recommends planting bengal creeper, rangoon creeper and purple bignognia.

If you're not feeling the vines this year, you may opt for some simple shrubs intsead. The news source suggests planting yellow ginger for their bright flowers and bridal bouquet shrubs for their scent.

For a quintessential December bloom, try planting a paperwhite narcissus this year, or adding it to a seasonal floral display. The narcissus is the December birth flower and is known for its heady scent, according to BirthFlowersGuide.com.
