Top Christmas Flowers & Plants

During the Christmas season, several flowers and plants are favored for their festive appearance, symbolism, or traditional association with the holiday. Here are some of the most popular flowers and plants during Christmas.

Easily the most recognizable Christmas plant, the poinsettia is native to Central America and comes in vibrant red and green colors, though there are also pink, white, and marbled varieties.

Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera):
Unlike other cacti, the Christmas cactus blooms in winter, producing flowers that range from bright red to pink to white.
With its sharp, green leaves and bright red berries, holly is a symbol of Christmas, representing hope. It's often used in wreaths and garlands.

A well-known Christmas plant due to the custom of kissing underneath it, mistletoe has white berries and is used as a decorative hanging.

Often sung about in Christmas carols, ivy is symbolic of eternal life and resurrection.

This striking plant boasts tall stems and large bell-shaped flowers. Red and white varieties are especially popular during the Christmas season.

Often chosen as a festive indoor plant during the winter months, cyclamen has heart-shaped leaves and flowers that range from white and pink to deep red.

Sometimes shaped into a miniature Christmas tree, rosemary is not only fragrant but also associated with remembrance and friendship.

Norfolk Island Pine:
While not a true pine, this plant is often used as a mini Christmas tree in places where space is limited. Its soft, flexible branches are adorned with decorations.

Paperwhites (Narcissus):
These are popular bulbs to force indoors during the holiday season. They produce clusters of white, fragrant flowers.

Star of Bethlehem:
This plant, with its star-shaped white flowers, symbolizes purity and hope, making it a fitting choice for the Christmas season.

When selecting flowers and plants for the Christmas season, it's also essential to consider their care requirements and potential toxicity, especially if there are pets or small children in the household. For instance, poinsettias are often believed to be highly toxic, but they are only mildly so. Still, it's always a good practice to keep them out of reach.

Christmas & Winter Flower Delivery

Nancy's Floral offers same-day delivery to the entire Portland, OR metro area.  Winter floral delivery can present unique challenges, primarily due to the season's cold temperatures and unpredictable weather. In areas experiencing extreme cold, leaving floral arrangements outside can jeopardize their freshness and vitality. Furthermore, adverse weather conditions, such as snowstorms or icy roads, can delay delivery schedules, affecting the timeliness of the recipient receiving their bouquet. Additionally, the vast geographical expanse of the country means weather conditions can vary significantly from one region to another. While one area might enjoy a mild winter, another might be grappling with heavy snowfall, necessitating flexibility and proactive communication between florists and customers during this season.  In the face of adverse weather conditions, Nancy's Floral will diligently strive to ensure your floral, plant, or gift delivery is completed safely and as promptly as possible. 

Christmas Wedding Bouquets

Christmas weddings offer a unique charm in terms of floral arrangements. The season's rich color palette, encompassing deep reds, whites, and greens, provides vibrant and elegant bouquets. Abundant natural foliage like pine and holly adds texture and a festive aroma. Symbolic flowers such as poinsettias enrich the decor's meaning, while accents like berries and pinecones infuse a holiday touch. The ambiance is further heightened with candlelit floral centerpieces, and the cooler winter temperatures help maintain the freshness of flowers. Incorporating aromatic elements like pine creates a festive scent, and using seasonal greenery can be both economical and eco-friendly. Combined with traditional Christmas decorations, flowers during this season make wedding venues feel especially cozy and intimate.

According to the story, when she placed the weeds by the nativity scene, they miraculously transformed into the bright red poinsettias. In the United States, December 12th is recognized as National Poinsettia Day, commemorating the death of Joel Roberts Poinsett, who introduced the flower to the U.S. from Mexico.
