Trees are terrific things to have in your lawn. They clean the air, they give shade and privacy, they are great for climbing and they’re beautiful to look at too. While many trees are just too big to consider growing indoors, there are lots of trees that produce wonderful accents to the inside of your home. Here’s just a few:
If you’re a lover of the Victorian Era you may have seen images or seen pictures of this time with parlour palms sprucing up the, well, parlour. The adapt well to low humidity and light and they are on the list of NASA’s 50 Plants That Clean the Air. And face it, they’re breezy and fancy and who wouldn’t want one in their living room in a large ceramic pot?
If you would like a touch of Christmas into your home year round, what about a Norfolk Pine? They are essentially baby Christmas trees which love bright light and moist soil.
If you like big bold statements you will need a Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree in your living area. 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 windows and doors and you’re ready to go.
The Ficus is perhaps the most common indoor tree there’s, heck, they even make a fake version which you dust once in a while and forget about. The actual version is actually a weeping fig tree if you would like to get technical, and they come in various textures and heights so they’re perfect for any room, everywhere.
Love the tropics but reside where there seems to be perpetual winter? Then what about adding a Majesty Palm for your dwelling? Throw on the warmth, watch the palm tree and pretend you are on the beach, even if it is January and there is a blizzard waging outside.
If you like more of a desert type tree then the Yucca is for you. They have thick woody stems and pointy leaves that come in many different blue to blue green colours and have yellow, cream or white tones to them also. If you need more information please go to Wildlife Removal.
