The Twelve Plants of Christmas

I spent some time yesterday assembling a wreath to decorate my door.

I started by coiling a long aggressive elaeagnus stem to make my wreath form.  Then I collected and added an assortment of greenery, fresh and dried flowers and fruit.

When I counted, I realized that I had chosen 12 different plant species.  Everything was selected for a purpose or sentimental reason.


So… for the twelve days of Christmas my garden gave to me:

Can you find all 12 plants in my wreath?


A budded mume twig

Aromatic Cedar

Holly from a friend

And dried roses for remembrance


Fruiting Possumhaw

Hypericum for health

A spray of silvery mums

And Star Magnolia to lead the wise


Wedding hydrangeas

First narcissus blooms

Vaccinium darrowii

And robust red camellias.
