No matter what season or time of year it is, you can enjoy gorgeous green plants inside. Caring for apartment plants has a host of benefits, including improved mood and productivity. Best of all, you don't need to have a green thumb to bring a touch of greenery to your space, even in the winter. Here are three great houseplants that will hold up year-round and where you can buy them near our Wimmer Communities properties in the Milwaukee suburbs.

Jade Plant

Whether you love houseplants or are terrified of overwatering (or underwatering!), succulents like the jade plant are the perfect solution. They do well inside and will easily survive the winter months. You can easily showcase your jade plant with a simple and beautiful DIY terrarium. All you'll need is a glass globe container, some soil, and rocks or gravel. For purchasing your very own jade plant, check out Action Garden in New Berlin.

Mint Plant

Growing just a few herbs in your kitchen is another great way to bring a splash of green to your home. What's more, you can enjoy the benefits of delicious fresh herbs in your meals or tea. While other herbs are better suited for certain light or temperature conditions, you can grow mint indoors year-round. Stein's Garden & Home in Brookfield offers several different mint varieties to choose from. 

African Violet

For a touch of color to go with your greenery, try the African violet. It can bloom vibrant purple flowers all year long! African violets are tolerant houseplants even through the winter months. Flowering houseplants are also a great option if you love fresh-cut flowers but want a more sustainable option. Stop by Fruit of the Bloom Garden Center to browse all their lovely houseplants and flowers. 

Whether you call Greenfield or another nearby area home, you can enjoy lush apartment plants at any time. For more information about renting in the Milwaukee suburbs, contact us at Wimmer Communities.
