Give An Organic PlantChristmas Rose Gift Idea

Charlie Nardozzi of the The Organic Authority suggests you look beyond poinsettias and give an unusual organic plant. Give a Christmas Rose (Helleborus niger), it treats you to large white flowers from November to March, with a magnificent crown of stamens at their heart. The Christmas Rose is almost completely unaffected by snow or frost. Although the plant droops a bit, it will straighten up again as soon as the temperature starts to warm up.

The holidays is the perfect occasion (excuse) to deploy an eco-agenda. Give a satisfying gift, give something that gives a green nod to the planet.
