New year, new plants. We’re rounding up our predictions for the biggest plant trends you can expect for the new year. 

In 2020, we added so many plant babies into our homes to bring a fresh feel into our spaces and create the ideal home offices. As we say hello to 2021, we’re ready to start the year fresh and welcome something new into our lives.

From old school trends making a comeback to brand new plant vibes, we’re rounding up our predictions for the biggest plant trends coming this year.

Pet-Friendly Plant Picks

Our brand new Petite Knock Out® Rose is perfect for beating the winter blues, and our Petite White Orchid or Purple Orchid are great picks to bring home when spring is in bloom.

Long and Strong Trailing Plants

Patterned Plants All the Way
