Bold Houseplants

Most gardeners have a few houseplants to bring the outdoors indoors, whether it's a beloved ficus, philodendron, or a tried-and-true spider plant. But houseplants can do more than just fill up an empty corner. They can enhance your home's décor or even make a bold statement that's impossible not to notice.

For bold texture, try plants with large leaves, like peace lily, lady palm, or fiddleleaf fig. If you're looking for bold, bright color, try croton, variegated dracaena, or bromeliads.

To make an even stronger statement with these plants (or even that old ficus) group several plants together in matching containers, and use an uplight to show off your display.
