The arrival of our new shipment of greenhouse plants, and discovering the contents of each box or bag, felt almost like opening presents on Christmas Day. The items, shipped in breathable cardboard boxes or wrapped in Kraft paper for protective purposes, opened some spectacular beauty. The orchids, double stemmed, became immediate favorites with customers, four already having found loving homes by 2 pm. Others will be scooped up quickly, due to their unmatched quality as much as the fact that they make such great Valentines Day living bouquets.
Other popular house plants for Valentines include the Red Valentine Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema) and the Red Flowering Anthurium, heart shaped especially for the season … well … not especially for this season, but you get the idea. My personal favorite … the tree ferns. Simply stunning.
