Houseplants, or also referred to as indoor, foliage and tropical plants, are a beautiful addition to our indoor spaces. Most are grown for their foliage as flowering houseplants can be a bit more demanding in their light requirements. 

Seasonal plants have become an important part of our holiday celebrations and add a unique touch to holiday décor.
