A little greenery can go a long way in giving your home a warmer, cozier feeling during the cold winter months. A traditional favorite around Christmas, you can continue to enjoy the vibrant red leaves of a poinsettia for many more months as long as it gets enough sunlight and water.
Plus, plants like the sansevieria (or snake plants) have been shown to actually filter the air according to a Clean Air Study conducted by NASA.* That means you can enjoy their thick, multi-hued green leaves and the smell of fresh air even while bundled up tightly inside.
Of course, if you're set on some brighter colors to contrast the snowy landscape outdoors, certain bulb-based flowers can also grow inside during the winter, including amaryllis, hyacinths, and daffodils.
