Now that the mercury is dropping all around the country, the colder weather is already on its way and should make life difficult for interior decorators. While there is no design scheme that is indicative of winter, adding a dash of white to your decorating is an easy way to give your home a neutral aesthetic you can work with.

These vibrant potted plants will infuse your home with enchanting aromas and will bloom year after year. Keep a few of these styles in mind when you're shopping for gardenias for your home.
