Graceful Holiday Color
We wait all year for these plants to cascade with opulent charm. So prized by some gardeners, they are handed down from one generation to the next. The flowers can be found in white and variations of red, pink, salmon, gold and lavender. Christmas Cactus love a north or east facing window and make great gifts.
