a chinese equivalent of a Christmas Tree?

Looks pretty don't they? These are not roadside plants. These are individual potted plants that are for sale for the coming Chinese New Year. Many people like to buy these plants for decoration as it has symbolic meanings.

The plants behind are mini fruit plants. They are mini mandarin oranges. They symbolize abundance of wealth. (as they look like golden nuggets)

The plants in front are flowering plants that have reddish and yellow colours, both auspicious colours too.



All for sale by this corner shop in Clementi, Sunset Way. They are only for sale during the Lunar New Year period. Haha.. something like a "Chinese Christmas Tree" equivalent? LOL. Yes, people do put decorations on them too!

Do you buy plants for decoration at any festive season?

Flowers and plants always make colourful photos! Yes, of course, holidays are great for decorating with plants: poinsettias for Christmas, lilies for Easter, roses for Valentine's Day and flowers for any occasion.

Happy Chinese New Year! Flowers are an important part of my life. I garden, and I also purchase flowers....most recently some gorgeous daffodils to remind me of Spring!

You've been posting some very colorful and interesting photos lately, Keropokman.

I think those decorations look much nicer than some Christmas trees. So cheerful and warm. Lovely, really.

What a profusion of fruit! I'd love to have one of those plants in my garden, next to my lemon tree...

How interesting! A great deal more natural than a pine tree cut and taken indoors. The mandarin plants look scrumptious too. Thanks for sharing.

les couleurs sont magnifiques, j'aime beaucoup les arbres à Mandarine. Cela change du traditionnel sapin de noel.

The colors are beautiful, and I love the trees in Mandarin. This changes the traditional Christmas tree.

No, I don't! But I got an African Violet as a gift recently and it's sitting on my kitchen table.
