Bulbs and Plants That Grow and Bloom Indoors We love our gardens so much, that we often want the "bring the outdoors in" - with color and fragrance and beautiful blooms in our homes. For those who live where the winters are bitter and long, having green, growing plants with beautiful blooms can keep the winter blues at bay and make the promise of the coming spring easier to hold on to. Most people are familiar with paperwhites and amaryllis, but some don't realize they are not just for Christmas! Plant and enjoy these beauties often from September through April for beautiful blooms just when you need them most. But that is not all! Some oxalis varieties make wonderful, long-lived house plants, and clivia, sedum and more will be happy snuggled indoors with you all winter long.
