Poinsettias are amazing, delicate plants that bring the holiday season a bit more cheer.

Poinsettias are sensitive to low temperatures and must be wrapped before you venture out into the cold. There are hundreds of different varieties, but these are the top 5 novelties to watch for while shopping at Lynde this holiday season.

How to Incorporate Winter Greens Around Your Home

Now that we have our indoor decorated with lovely poinsettias let’s talk about outdoor decorating. Evergreens hold up in the cold and offer a wonderful green texture all winter long. They can be used in Wreaths, Spruce Tip Pots, Swags, Kissing Balls, and centerpieces. Every year we like to offer holiday workshops that show you step-by-step how to create your very own. Check out our selection of workshops and dates!

What is a Spruce Tip Pot?
A Spruce Tip Pot is made from spruce tree tips and other evergreens arranged in a container to be enjoyed outside during the winter. Add pinecones, berries, or other holiday flair to add your personal touch. Place your Spruce Tip Pots where you had your summer containers and create a warm inviting space.

What is a Kissing Ball?
A Kissing Ball is a beautiful globe of green supported by a piece of ribbon. By selecting different greens like spruce, white pine, or juniper you can play with different textures and shapes when creating your globe. Hang your Kissing Ball where you normally hang your summer hanging baskets to add something unique this holiday season.

Your Holiday Arrangements

Spruce Tips
Spruce tips are sturdy and help create the foundation of your Spruce Tip Pot. They can be cut to size and no greens go to waste with creating.

Norway
Norway is sturdy and provides long needles. Adding Norway branches creates volume and fills out the midsection of the Spruce Tip Pot.

White Pine
White Pine is whimsical and provides long needles. Unlike the Norway branches White Pine adds a softer look and feel.
