HIBISCUS

Add something special to your indoor living with the tropical hibiscus. The hibiscus plant can grow in all sorts of vibrant colors—from shades of yellow and orange, to pink, red, purple and even blue. The plant forms giant, eye-catching blossoms that can grow as large as 8 inches in diameter. The plant blooms frequently from late spring through fall, so you can enjoy the beauty of hibiscus flowers time and again in your sunroom. Hibiscus are happy to grow in containers, which makes them a great choice for indoor gardening. Make sure to keep them near the windows in your sunroom, so they can soak up plenty of light.

AFRICAN VIOLET

Choose a charming, petite and sentimental flower to accent your sunroom. Among the easiest flowering houseplants to grow, African violets bloom all year long with little effort needed on your part. You can choose from hundreds of varieties and forms to find the perfect African violet to match the decor in your sunroom. The delicate blossoms are available in shades of white, pale pink, deep violet and many more variations. While the blossoms may appear delicate, the plant itself is quite hardy. Even if your green thumb isn’t up to snuff, you’ll do well with African violets. Overall, they prefer warm conditions and, if placed in or near a bright window, will bloom almost constantly.

GERANIUM

Typically available March through June, Geraniums are a great choice for your sunroom this spring. Several types of geraniums are grown as houseplants. Some, like the Regal or Martha Washington geranium, have large, full blossoms that come in a variety of colors. Others, like the common geranium or ivy geranium, have more modest (but still lovely!) flowers. Whatever type of geranium you choose, your sunroom will benefit from picturesque flowers that add great color and enliven your space. You can even choose scented geraniums, whose foliage provides fantastic fragrance all year round. The best part is that geraniums are very, very easy to grow and flourish in practically any environment.

There are many flowering houseplants that can grow well in your sunroom and provide you with a space that is colorful, soothing and refreshing. Whatever plants you choose to bring a little extra spring into your home, rest assured that they’ll grow well and look beautiful in your custom-designed Champion sunroom.
