As we prepare for winter and the colder days ahead, there are some colorful plants that can help ease the transition from one season to the next. While your outdoor plants are going to sleep for the winter, these indoor beauties are just waking up and putting on a festive floral show.

Some of our most colorful and favorite fall and winter blooming plants are:  

1- Abutilon -These bell-shaped flowers come in many floral colors and forms. Some like ‘Kristen’s Pink’ have more of an open-faced bloom, while others like our newest variety called ‘Red Tiger’ resembles a Chinese lantern and has remarkable cream colored and red veining throughout. Abutilons can be grown outside as a border plant and then taken inside for the winter months, or they can be grown as an indoor houseplant. They do best in full sun but will also grow successfully in an east or west window. Make sure to check the plants for spider mite or white fly if they have been kept outside all summer. We always give plants a preventative Neem oil spray before bringing them indoors.

2- Blue Skyflower (Thunbergia grandiflora)– Blue Skyflower has become a favorite for its reliable fall and winter blooming cycle of large, blue flowers when color is needed the most. It is a vining plant and does best on a stake or hoop. Simply wrap the leads around the wire frame and watch how the blooms seem to multiply. Grow in full sun and bring the soil to visual dryness between watering.

3- Bougainvillea – Loved for their bright colorful flowering bracts, bougainvilleas also bloom during the fall and winter seasons. We especially love ‘Vera Variegata.’ It has purple flower bracts that bring color to your living space and the cream colored foliage adds another dimension of texture and style. We also love ‘Firecracker Red’ which brings a burnt reddish-orange blaze of color. Give full sun to get brilliant color year-round.

4- Cape Primrose (Streptocarpus)- Most of our Cape Primroses will bloom 12 months of the year and several varieties, like our ‘Purple Panda,’ have outstanding two-toned flowers. Plus, their long velvety leaves are welcome greenery to the contrasting fall colors outside. Our newest variety, called ‘Roulette Cherry,’ has flowers that majestically rise above the foliage on elegant flower stems. Give these beauties partial sun to bright indirect light and do not get water on their leaves and they will delight your senses year-round.

5- Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera)- Easy-to-grow Christmas cactus come in so many colors that it is hard to chose which one would be our favorite. ‘Cristen’ is a prolific bloomer of large pink flowers with white inner petals. ‘Aspen’ has snow-white, frilly-edged flowers. ‘Limelight Dancer’ has pale yellow flowers with reddish-purple pistils. Christmas cactus are easy to care for and should be grown in partial sun to bright indirect light. Water when dry; do not keep the potting mix too moist.

6- Flaming Glorybower (Clerodendrum splendens)- Brilliant red flowers form in dense clusters covering the dark broad leaves. This spectacular holiday plant, which blooms from December through June, has been used as a centerpiece for many holiday parties and decorating schemes. Give full to partial sun for optimum flowering and after its blooming cycle pruning is needed to maintain a manageable indoor size.
