26 CHRISTMAS IN THE VALLEY 2018 NOVEMBER 28-DECEMBER 4, 2018 | THE VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER Make gift giving easy with unique green gifts that provide weeks and in some cases months and years of beauty. Plus, gifting easy-care blooming plants is an experiential gift that's ideal for everyone, especially that person on your list who has everything. Gardeners as well as practi- cal family members and friends will enjoy the dual purpose the Christmas rose (Hellebore) pro- vides. This popular European holiday plant is gaining popular- ity in holiday celebrations here in the U.S. Recipients will enjoy up to two months of blossoms indoors when grown in a cool bright location. Once the dan- ger of frost has passed, it can be moved outdoors into a full or partially shaded spot in the gar- den for years of added beauty. Even non-gardeners will be fascinated by the amaryllis as its beauty erupts from the bulb. Everyone will eagerly watch for the bulb to sprout, flower stems to quickly grow and eventually produce several large trumpet- shaped blooms. Make it easy and fun for all with a waxed amaryllis bulb. Dipped in colorful wax, these freestanding bulbs need no soil or water. Just set the waxed bulb in a space where they can be enjoyed and watch the magic happen as the amaryllis breaks through the wax coating and grows into a colorful specimen. Impress avid gardeners with unique varieties like Papillio Butterfly amaryllis. The flow- ers resemble orchids and are quite striking with maroon striped green petals. The narrow chartreuse lily-like blossoms of Evergreen eventually turn apple green, making it stand out among the red amaryllis and poinsettias of the season. Dress up your amaryllis gift by planting the bulb in a pretty container, setting it on stones in a glass hurricane or combining it with spring-flowering bulbs like tulips, grape hyacinths and crocus. Provide some aromatherapy, flavor and beauty with fragrant flowers and herbs. Lily-of-the- valley may be a bully in the garden, but it's a fragrant beauty sure to brighten a winter day when planted in a container and enjoyed indoors. The calming fragrance of Spanish lavender can be enjoyed fresh or the stems and flowers snipped, dried and added to bouquets and sachets. Rosemary's flavor makes it a perfect gift for the foodies on your list. And everyone, includ- ing non-cooks, will enjoy its fra- grance. Grow it indoors in a cool location with morning sun or under artificial lights.
