This Christmas flower bulbs are a must have in your plant collection so you can watch them bloom during the festive season!
Best Christmas flower bulbs
1. Paper white
These produce two to three stalks of white flowers – and the best part is that, unlike many other bulbs, they require no chilling time. This makes them ideal for immediate planting!
They have a sweet scent that can fill a room with a pleasant scent during the festive season!
Once they have cooled, they can easily be poured into pots or jars with water. They come in a wide range of colors including deep purple, pink, blue and white. Hyacinths can complement any Christmas decor palette.
Pro tip: Choose pre-chilled bulbs for planting.
These bulbs have large, trumpet-like flowers and come in colors of red, pink, white and orange. They do not require a chilling period and can flower 6-8 weeks after planting, making them perfect for Christmas display.
Snowdrops complement Christmas decorations with their small bell-shaped white flowers, which also symbolize hope and renewal. These are the first bulbs to bloom and often appear while there is still snow on the ground.
5. Winter aconites
Winter aconite features bright yellow flowers that complement its green leaves perfectly. After planting in the fall, they typically bloom about three to five months later, depending on winter temperatures and local growing conditions.
Crocuses come in a variety of colors, including white, purple and pink, which is why they are popular as Christmas bloomers. If you are aiming for late December blooms, plant them in the fall as they will bloom about 3 to 4 months after planting.
Quick tips on care and maintenance
- For all of these bulbs, well-drained soil is crucial. Water moderately.
- After flowering, provide bright, indirect light.
