Here's a quick look at a selection of plant materials that give a winter feel. Some winter firm favourites and other more unusual varieties.
From left to right
• Ilex - Leafless holly! Ilex is the genus of all holly that you're so familiar with.
• Eryngium - usually called thistles by many consumers, but now you know 'Eryngium'
• Viburnum dentatum - Viburnum is a giant family, with many different type of berry, including a very similar Viburnum Tynus but they have a reflective quality to them hence their common name of aluminium berry
• Jatropha - also known by the common name of firecracker flower due to it's sparky red form.
• Euphorbia - Another big, big family which includes the other Christmas must have flower the poinsettia who's latin name is Euphorbia pulcherrima
• Anemone - white Anemone as pictured here back a beautiful addition to a winter flower selection.
• Bouvardia - lovely as an addition for a winter display, but it like to be kept from getting chilly, not just being kept away from drafts, which applies for all flowers, but temperatures that are too cool!
• Hypericum - available year round but these berries that come in green, brown and shades of orange too are just idea for winter
• Hyacinths - beautiful to grown as from bulbs whether in the home or garden, but stunning as a cut flower too, you'd be hard pushed to find a more fragrant flower.
• Eryngium - as can be seen from the two different varieties pictured here they come in different sizes and blue and almost a silver tone, stunning with whites, or soft pinks or apricots, a touch of silver or champagne materials are a perfect friend too.
• Hypericum - again another variety which illustrates some of the range available.
