Living or Traditional Wreath?

Living or Traditional Wreath?

Lily Gahagan
Dec 11, 2008

Life after the holidays may be a bit glum, but the piles of dead trees and wreathes on the curb can make it downright depressing. We don't have a tree this year, but we did get a traditional wreath with evergreen, pine cones and juniper berries. It's beautiful, but next year we might opt for this gorgeous wreath of succulents, which will live on long after the gloomy weeks of January fade...

You can care for a living wreath with a little water and some regular pruning (pinch most new growth to keep the plants from crowding). While we love the look, it may be maintenance that some prefer to do without. We also must admit that the smell of our traditional wreath is heavenly, and very evocative of the season. So which style do you prefer, and what do you have up?
