low-light plants you need for winter

low-light plants you need for winter

winter is coming - but the dark evenings are no match for these plants!

We may all groan that the clocks have gone back, marking summer as a distant memory as darkness starts to settle in out of nowhere at 3pm, sigh! But, it’s not all bad news – think of the extra hour in bed you’ve gained this morning! As we hunker down for winter, it’s a great excuse to treat yourself to a new plant for all those nights spent cosied up at home. Low light is no match for these greens which will thrive no matter how dreary it gets outside. 

Dieffenbachia Camilla

The luscious leaves on the Dieffenbachia Camilla won’t be fazed by any harsh winter light, so you can admire its variegated foliage in shades of cream, yellow and green without a worry! It’s a great air purifier, too which is a welcome addition for the cooler months when the central heating is on a lot more, too.

Parlour palm


This tropical plant is still as popular now as it was almost 150 years ago – the Victorians loved it and so do we! Known for its long stems and lush green, feathery foliage, the Parlour Palm is native to the rainforests of Southern Mexico, so has the ability to adapt to relatively low light and low temperatures. In other words, it’s another plant that’ll breeze the cold season.

Asparagus Fern

Don’t let the name confuse you, this plant isn’t a true fern, it’s just nicknamed this in reference to its wispy fronds. It’s actually a relative of lilies! In the wild, the asparagus fern grows beneath trees which means it’s used to shaded light – making it the perfect addition to your winter crew.

Why settle at just one plant, when you can assemble an entire gang of greens? This bundle, including the Spider Plant, Philodendron Scandens, ZZ Plant and Prayer Plant, have been specifically chosen for their ability to tolerate low light and shade. With little care needs, this set will brighten gloomy spots in your home with ease.
