Which flower do you like best for December?

winter flowers

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac founded in 1792

in the USA the special flower for the month of December is either holly or the narcissus.

The Interflora website for UK

identifies holly as the December floral treat in the UK.

But Battle House of Flowers

shows the poinsettia as December’s special bloom.

While Flower Press

sticks with the narcissus for the UK too.

I think they’re all beautiful flowers

but for Christmas I usually buy a poinsettia from the garden centre and pick a few sprigs of holly out of the garden to stick around the picture frames.
