The Top 5 Christmas Flowers

Let's get cosy! For inspiration for your Christmas decorations and to get you in the Christmas spirit, we have listed our Top 5 Christmas flowers. There are the Poinsettia, the Amaryllis, the Snow Lily, the Mistletoe, and the Holly. Do you know these magnificent Christmas flowers? 

Amaryllis: The queen of the Christmas flowers. As a very well-known winter flower, the amaryllis has earned the #1 spot of your Christmas flowers. Did you know that the amaryllis grows wild in South America? It is a bulbous plant with flowers in red, white, pink, and orange. 

Poinsettia/Christmasstar: A very popular Christmas plant. The poinsettia originates in Mexico. The poinsettia only flowers on days that are shorter than 12 hours. Would you like your poinsettia to flower again? Then leave your plant in complete darkness for 14 hours a day for at least 6 - 8 weeks. 

Snowrose: The Snow Rose impresses in winter with its elegant white flowers. Also known as the Christmas rose, it is a great eye-catcher during the Christmas season! The Christmas rose is found in the wild in wooded mountain areas at altitudes of up to 1900 metres in the eastern and southern Alps. The plant blooms in winter and produces beautiful white flowers. 

Mistletoe: Interestingly, this plant is an evergreen hemiparasite that grows on trees. And yes, we all know the popular tradition: if you stand under a mistletoe, you must kiss. Who likes this romantic tradition as much as we do?

Holly: Holly is often used as a Christmas decoration. But caution is still advised: The red berries are poisonous to humans. We recognize the holly by its leaves, which are spiked.

Why are red, white and green the traditional Christmas colours?

Every country has its own Christmas traditions. What we notice, however, is that 3 colours, in particular, appear again and again and everywhere. In December, the whole of Germany shines in shades of red, white and green and everyone knows that Christmas is just around the corner. But why are these colours so typical for Christmas? 

This colourful tradition began centuries ago. The symbolism plays a big role here. Red, white and green stand for love, faith and hope. Christmas, as we know, is a Christian festival and so it will not surprise you that the traditional Christmas colours originally had a religious meaning. In the colour wheel, red and green face each other and form a harmonious combination. White is also an excellent Christmas colour, reminding us of the white Christmas. Pure romance!
