Red Winter Flowers
Camellia, Christmas poinsettias, and amaryllis will add the perfect bright red colors to your garden and your home.
Gorgeous camellia starts blooming in October, but these flowers start to peak in December and January. This flower tolerates the cold really well and gives you a shine of huge, beautiful blossoms that people sometimes compare to peonies or roses.

Poinsettias are known as Christmas flowers and are commonly used as holiday decorations. They have bright red and green leaves, and with good care, could last 2 or 3 months after the holidays. Poinsettias could be displayed indoors as well as outside. It is a native Mexican flower, but nowadays spread to Central America as well as Europe. It loves bright but indirect light and could be planted outside where the temperature should be no less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit because it can freeze because of its warm, Mexican origin. After a while if the red leaves fall off, do not worry, we have a secret. Just put your flower in a dark place for 14 hours a day for 8 weeks, and it will be red again. The original meaning of this holiday bloom is joy, success, and cheer.
Amaryllis is another flower that is a really popular gift for Christmastime and comes from huge bulbs. People purchase it for holiday gifts, and it’s really cute with different packaging and bowls. The blooming season of these gorgeous flowers is from late December until June and it lasts for 8–10 weeks. Amaryllis is mostly an indoor plant, but can be planted outside. Do not forget to move it indoors before the first frost. The meaning of amaryllis is love, determination, and beauty and when you are giving it as a gift, you are brightening and sparkling up dark days and evenings during winter.
Winter Blue Flowers
Pansies, violas, and the glory of the snow are stunning blue flowers that bloom during the winter.
Pansies amazingly survive cold temperatures and if flowers aren't blooming during the frost and wither, it does not mean that the pansies did not survive; they did and will bloom again. They are outdoor plants but could be planted indoors on your balcony or window as well to make you happy with its blooms during the winter. The meaning of these blue winter flowers is the feeling of love, and you can give them as a present to the person that indicates a lot in your life.
The winter iris is such a beautiful flower that has an unusual form of petals that other flowers don’t have. They have rich blue-purple colors and slim stems. If you are thinking of blooms that are in bloom during the winter, think of irises. They need a mild winter to bloom and cannot survive in a tropical climate. The best time to plant them is from September to December, before it is freezing. Plant bulbs in a sunny place with well-drained ground and will show up with blooms in late winter or early spring. Iris symbolizes hope and wisdom, and they are like a message of promising hope.
Glory of the snow is a type of bulb flower that blooms from late winter to early spring. Usually they get planted in fall when the weather is getting colder and the temperature is between 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit. Glory of the snow symbolizes hope, like being the first flower to spike from snow to be reborn and survive no matter what so that whatever happens, you always have a hope for the future.
Purple Winter Flowers
Crocus and violas are purple blooms of the winter.
Crocus applies to the iris family, and they naturally come from the Alps and Europe and bloom in early spring with gorgeous purple flowers. The perfect time to plant them is from September to early November. Their blooms will last for 3 weeks and give you beautiful colors. They are also good as indoor plants, try to plant their bulbs in pots but put them in a shady place to make them grow. The common meaning of crocus is rebirth and new beginnings, such as new life that happens in the spring after the dead season of winter.
Blue violas look almost the same as pansies, and sometimes people mistake them. Violas are smaller, more compact flowers and more resistant to cold. They symbolize innocence and modesty, but blue ones stand for loyalty and allegiance.
Yellow Winter Flowers
Winter aconite and jasmine are sunny yellow blooms of winter.
Winter aconites usually bloom with or a little bit earlier than crocuses and come from the ranunculus family. They are bright yellow, cup-shaped flowers surrounded by green bracts.
