jasmineGardening indoors is great enjoyment and best use of time when snow flies. You can grow beautiful blooms with plenty of easy-to-grow flowering houseplants.

Majority of such plants are not intended for outdoor gardens as these are not winter-hardy. So, it is best to keep them as houseplants only and better indoors.

Jasmine’s flowering vine spreads sweet fragrance around. Usually grown on a topiary frame or ring, jasmine bears tubular white and light-pink flowers. They prefer high light levels, but not direct sun, and evenly moist soils. Winter Jasmine (Jasminum polyanthum) is one of the easiest species to grow indoors during winters.

The Tuberous Rieger Begonias are great winter-blooming  camellia-like flowers in shades of red, yellow, orange, pink and white. Their glossy green foliage thrives in high light levels, but be sure to keep them out of direct sunlight. This plant can easily be planted out into a shady garden spot during spring but be careful with the first frost.

gloxiniaThe lovely traditional flowering houseplant named Gloxinia would be a great choice to grow indoors during winters. It flowers in late winter and bears large, speckled flowers in a wide range of colors. The bell-shaped blossoms cover the large leaves but the plant goes dormant and dies back after flowering. Ensure keeping it evenly moist by watering from below to keep the leaves dry. Warm temperatures and medium to high light levels and high humidity are the requirements for Gloxinia. Better put it on a humidity tray.

Silver Vase Plant( Aechmea fasciata) is known as the unusual flowering house plants for its striking flowers and bold foliage. The pineapple-like pink and purple flower spike rises out of the center of the silvery striped leaves. The core of this plant is a hole into which water is added, rather than into the soil. The flowers last for months.

Calceolaria (Pocketbook Flower) (Lady’s Purse) is a unique plant with flowers as the common names clearly indicate. Heart-shaped, hairy, dark green leaves are topped with inflated pouch-like flowers. They can be various shades of red, yellow, orange, white and copper. The plants require high humidity and cool temperatures to survive. The soil must be evenly moist.
