Plant a wonderful winter windowbox

Christmas Roses

How to enjoy Christmas roses from early winter to early spring

 

Christmas roses are one of the few flowering plants able to withstand winter temperatures – which makes them ideal for an outdoor winter windowbox.

Here they are teamed with conifer twigs, fir cones and gaultheria berries.

The large creamy white flowers
of the Christmas rose will gradually
turn a soft pink as they age.

For an extra Christmassy effect, lightly spray the fir cones with artificial ‘snow’.
