Top 10 Flowers to Enjoy In January

In my last post I listed plants that provide interest outside in January. This list is concerned with plants grown indoors that are in bloom at this time. Some like Gardenias have been brought inside for the winter and others are always treated as houseplants. I came across this list on the Top Inspired website.

Nature goes to sleep during winter months but that certainly doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the beauty of flowers and plants during this time of the year. Winter-blooming flowers will keep you happy until the first wave of spring flowers comes. Check the following list and add some colors to your home with these beautiful blossoms.

Normally we are used to see gardenias outside but they can also be potted or stored inside during the winter months. You have to keep them in a sunny but cool spot. In order to keep them growing and blooming they will also need some humidity.

2. Chenille plant

Chenille plant is perfect for pot planting. It can reach twelve to eighteen inches in length and up to one inch in width. The plant likes warm temperatures and high humidity. It will also thrive better in bright light. Keep it out of reach of children and pets because it is mildly toxic.

3. Shrimp plant
