This greenie will put all your Christmas ornaments to shame with its pure white flowers and its irresistible sweet scent.
This flower is native to the entire Mediterranean region, and there is a range of different varieties that differ slightly from one another. It is known for being a Christmas houseplant, and it is grown mainly for its ability to bear flowers from winter to early spring.
Identify it through its large clusters of strongly scented white flowers with delicate and small star-like petals that bloom annually. Its sweet and spicy fragrance exudes from its 6 to 8 heads, and it can grow between 16-18 inches (40-46 cm). It has strap-like green foliage and leafless stems.
It’s low maintenance and undemanding, but make sure to keep it out of reach since it is toxic for both pets and humans, causing discomfort when ingested and skin irritations.
