National Houseplant Appreciation Day

National Houseplant Appreciation Day is quickly approaching, which means that people everywhere should be considering what new houseplants they want to add to their home. This holiday is the perfect opportunity to buy a new houseplant or give one as a gift. Houseplants offer a wonderful amount of color for any room in the house while also helping to clean the air and freshen the home. What a wonderful way to lift the spirits of everyone who enters the residence! At Walter Knoll Florist, we recommend any of the following to those who ask us what flowers they should add to their home.

Peace Lily

The Peace Lily is a popular choice for many people looking to add a plant to their decor. The leaves of this plant have a shiny and deep green while the blooms are a beautiful and gentle white. These plants are known for being easy to care for, making them a good choice even for those who might not have the best ‘green thumb’. Since they thrive with low light conditions, it is easy to place them nearly anywhere in the home. People like them in the entranceways to their home, around fireplaces, or in the corners of the living room.


Those who want to have plenty of color in their inside plants will find the mum to be an excellent choice. Mums offer brilliant and varied colors that adds plenty of light to the home. The beauty of the flowers should help put a smile on anyone’s face. These flowers are excellent for gifts and can be placed on tables or countertops.


Orchids have become increasingly popular over the past few years for their simple and unique beauty. They offer an elegant look that adds style and color to any room of the house. There are countless different types of orchids, but the Phalaenopsis Orchid tends to work very well for houseplants. Look for a smaller orchid and use the plant nearly anywhere, from desks in the office to the countertop in the kitchen.

National Houseplant Appreciation Day is a wonderful opportunity to recommit to caring for the plants inside the home and using these arrangements to add a little bit of color and life of the house or apartment. Celebrate the day by buying or giving houseplants. Use our above suggestions to get the search started.
