Although flowers are not the first thing to come to mind when winter is mentioned, there are a number of hardy plants and flowers that are planted or even bloom during the winter season. Some flowers prefer the milder climates of the deep south while others thrive in cold temperatures. The experts at Bosland’s Flower Shop would love to share some of our favorite winter flowers with you so that your home can bloom even in winter.

Beautiful, small white flowers that grow from a bulb planted in the fall.

Snowdrops add a freshness to your indoor decorating that bring a little bit of spring to your home in the winter.
Grown from a large bulb, the Amaryllis rises on a sturdy green stalk. The blooms are large and range in color from bright white to rich reds. Originally from South America, the Spanish name for the flower means sparkle. These gorgeous flowers will bloom throughout the winter seasons.
