5 traditional blooms for Christmas flower arrangements

We’re getting into the festive spirit at Dianthus Miami! If you’re still picking out decorations and Christmas flower arrangements, this guide is here to help. Here are 5 traditional flowers and ferns to celebrate the winter holidays.


Poinsettia is a classic Christmas flower, with its velvety red petals and dark green leaves. And because it’s a hardy plant, you can use cut poinsettia flowers in a bouquet, or deck your halls with fresh poinsettia in elegant plant pots.

Mistletoe berries

We all know the story of the mistletoe! Whether or not you’re looking for some Christmas kisses, mistletoe is an elegant addition to your floral arrangements. Its ivory-white berries and pale green leaves match well with almost any décor.

However, mistletoe is toxic to eat – so make sure you keep it well out of reach of pets and young children.

Evergreen branches

The Christmas tree isn’t the only winter evergreen! Branches and leaves from evergreen plants add beautiful texture and contrast to winter floral arrangements. And the best part: they smell great, too.

Christmas cactus

The Christmas cactus is scientifically known as the “orchid cactus”. It got its festive name because the flowers often bloom around Christmas time. This is a great choice if you want to do something different within the Christmas tradition. Christmas cactus works especially well in hanging baskets or tall planters.

Christmas rose

Last of all, the Christmas rose. It’s also called the snow rose or winter rose, and just like the Christmas cactus, it blooms in the heart of winter. Giving someone a Christmas rose is a traditional symbol of friendship and generosity – in the spirit of Christmas!

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to
    get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Internet explorer.
    Exceptional Blog!
