Trees are great things to have in your lawn. They clean the air, they provide shade and privacy, they’re fantastic for climbing and they are beautiful to look at too. While many trees are simply too big to consider growing inside, there are lots of trees that produce wonderful accents to the inside of your dwelling. Here’s just a few:
If you are a fan of the Victorian Era you might have seen pictures or seen movies of this time with parlor palms sprucing up the, well, parlor. The adapt well to low light and humidity and they’re on the list of NASA’s 50 Plants That Clean the Air. And face it, they’re breezy and elaborate and who wouldn’t want one in their living room in a large ceramic pot?
If you want a touch of Christmas into your home year round, what about a Norfolk Pine? They are essentially baby Christmas trees that love bright light and moist soil. At Christmas time you can decorate them with little bows or fairy lights, but they make a great addition to any room year round.
If you like big bold statements you will want a Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree in your living room. These trees have large sculptured leaves that give the atmosphere of the tropics without being weepy or wispy. These trees love light but do not like drafts so keep them away from doors and windows and you’re ready to go.
The Ficus is perhaps the most popular indoor tree there is, heck, they even make a fake version which you dust once in a while and forget about. The real version is actually a weeping fig tree if you would like to get technical, and they are available in various textures and heights so they are perfect for any room, any where.
Love the tropics but live where there seems to be perpetual winter? Then what about adding a Majesty Palm for your home? They are fan shaped and have that tropical feel to them and best of all they are slow growing if they are not getting strong sunlight. Throw on the heat, see the palm tree and pretend you are on the beach, even if it is January and there’s a blizzard waging outside. They have thick woody stems and pointy leaves that come in many different blue to blue green colours and have yellow, white or cream tones to them too.
