Many people when they think of blooms for the Holidays think of Poinsettias. I on the other hand always remember those huge pots of Christmas Cactus that sat in my mother's windows loaded with blooms just for the holidays.
Unlike my mother who just had the red I also have the yellow. There is a white also but I haven't been able to find one YET!!
These two plants I have had for many years and sit in the south facing window in my guest bedroom. They have always done well there and there they will stay safe from grandchildren's little fingers.
It is such a joy when everything is brown and frozen outside to have fresh blossoms inside the house.
