Q.Indoor Houseplants

Anonymous added on March 15, 2011 | Answered

Looking for an assortment of indoor plants for a tenement upper stairway and landing. There is some light, and it’s very cold in winter – it doesn’t actually freeze but feels similar. Any suggestions?

This is a tough one. Most traditional houseplants are tropical and just can't take the cold. You probably would be best looking at outdoor plants that can make it in lower light. I am thinking English ivy or creeping juniper might work. Pachysandra may also work.
