The best advice for giving great gifts is to give something
you would like to receive. And, since you're reading this issue of
plant savvy, it's likely that you are among the many who prefer plants
or other gardening related goodies as gifts. So head down to your local
garden center and use your imagination. Winter blooming plants
will brighten anyone's day. Camellias are good
choices, like the pretty red Spring's Promise Ice
Angels® and Yuletide, or snowy
white varieties like White Doves and Northern Exposure.
Gold Collection® Cinnamon Snow has creamy white flowers suffused
with warm rose and cinnamon. Plant a few in a pretty container and
voile... gift is done. Some varieties of Heath bloom from winter
through early spring, like Mediterranean Pink
with lavender-pink blooms or Kramer's Winter Red
with magenta red flowers.
