MOST FREQUENTLY PURCHASED PLANTS
Dish Gardens: Dish gardens are small-scale, enclosed gardens that we plant in containers. They're really popular. We use all kinds of unique containers in creating our dish gardens. Our award-winning design staff loves mixing various green and flowering plants together to create gorgeous designs. Our customers really enjoy the fact that dish gardens are easy to maintain, and they're great for people who don't have a lot of space.
Flowering Plants: Flowering plants are the most abundant group of plants on Earth. They're also the most diverse and plentiful of all living things. Flowering plants include trees, shrubs, vines, grasses, ferns and mosses. Flowers are the primary way that flowering plants reproduce.
Flowers have four main parts: sepals (the outermost petal), petals (the next set of petals), stamens (the pollen-producing male organs) and carpels (the female ovary). The stamen is the male sex organ of a flower; it contains two types of pollen-producing cells: anthers, which are located above the style, and filamentous staminodes (also called "filaments"), which hang down from the top of the anthers. The carpel is where seeds develop; it consists of an ovary wall with two cells within it: one atop another in a stack.
Green Plants: Thrifty Florist offers an incredible selection of beautiful, farm-fresh green plants. We have all your favorites. Choose from Crotons, Dieffenbachia, and more. Green plants are also incredibly diverse: there are over 300,000 species of them! Each type of plant has its own unique features, but they all share some common characteristics: they have roots that anchor them to the ground; stems that help them get nutrients from the soil; leaves that gather energy from the sun; and flowers that produce seeds.
Croton Plants - Croton plants are a kind of shrub with colorful variegated leaves. They're native to the Americas, but they've been cultivated in other regions as well. Croton plants have a wide variety of uses. Some people use them as houseplants, while others use them as ground cover or in containers. Croton plants can also be pruned into beautiful shapes and used as ornamental shrubs.
Dieffenbachia Plants - Dieffenbachias have thick, shiny leaves that grow in rosettes of anywhere from four to six leaves at a time. They come in a variety of colors, including green, white, red, yellow, and orange—but they all have the same thick leaves that are good for handling. The plant is easy to care for and makes an excellent addition to any home or office space!
Spider Plants - Spider plants are a popular houseplant because they're easy to care for and can thrive in low-light conditions. They're often called airplane plants or crab's claw, as well. Spider plants have long, narrow leaves which tend to grow in pairs on a single stem. The plant produces small white flowers that turn into tiny red berries. It's best to keep the leaves trimmed so that the plant continues to produce new ones, which will help it grow more vigorously.
Succulent Plants: Succulent plants are plants that store water in their leaves and stems, so they don't need to be watered as often. They come in all shapes and sizes, from tiny little cacti to big fleshy flowers. Succulents are a great choice if you're looking for a low-maintenance plant, or if you're new to gardening and want to experiment with something new. If you're looking for a low-maintenance plant that will brighten up your home, succulents are the way to go. They come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and colors.
