To ensure residents of the Avon Place Apartments have a living space outfitted in flowers and foliage, our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has put together a list of plants that are perfect for each room.



Enhance your apartment space and add some fresh flavours to your culinary creations by growing your own herbs and spices. Rosemary, sage, basil and oregano all enjoy a large amount of sunlight and will make an excellent addition to meats, sauces and breads. Tarragon, garlic and marjoram can also be grown in the kitchen. In addition to enjoying sunlight, herbs also need humidity and fresh air. Fill the kitchen windowsill with flowering options like Daffodils, Snowdrops, African Violets and Morning Glory. For all your gardening needs, drop by Klomps Nursery and Garden Center at 3994 Perth Line 20 in Saint Paul’s Station. The nursery is a seven-minute drive from the Avon Place Apartments.



Plants that require low light and humid conditions are an ideal choice for bathroom spaces. If you’re looking for a beautiful flower that will thrive in your bathroom, the Peace Lily is the flower that comes to mind. Creamy white flowers, glossy green leaves that tolerate medium, indirect sunlight and air-purifying traits are a few characteristics of this favourite houseplant. Keep the soil slightly moist and wait a few months before repotting to ensure a healthy, happy plant. Located at 48 Wellington Street, Catherine Wright Designs currently sells peace lily arrangements and a variety of other fantastic flowers. The store is a four-minute drive and 26-minute walk from the apartments. Even in the worst light conditions the Cast Iron Plant will survive. This low-maintenance plant isn’t too picky about frequent watering and consistent temperatures. While this plant doesn’t need too much TLC, make sure to wipe down or shower the leaves with water to remove dust build up.


Living Room

Summer Snapdragons, Coleus and Areca Palm Trees are all great living room plants. Snapdragons add a subtle grape scent and colourful bloom into the space, while the Coleus plant is available in a variety of colours. According to NASA, the Areca Palm Tree is an excellent air humidifier that removes carbon dioxide and toxins from the air, with an air-purifying score of 8.5. These plants last the longest if their stems are cut and they’re placed in a vase. Drop by Al Smith’s Flowers Ltd and take a look at their colourful flower creations. Located at 583 Dundas Street in Woodstock, the store is a 34-minute drive from the Avon Place Apartments.



Breathe easier in your bedroom with plants that purify the existing air quality. English Ivy’s dense foliage absorbs formaldehyde, found in floorboards and carpet dyes. This plant is perfect for cosier spaces with minimal light. Be sure to handle this plant with care as it is known to cause skin irritation and is poisonous if eaten. Mother-in-law’s tongue, also known as Snake Plant, absorbs carbon monoxide and releases oxygen back into the air. Located at 27 York Street, Flowers on York is a great spot to pick up some colourful flowers and unique arrangements. The apartments are a five-minute drive and 29-minute walk from the store.
Give your apartment some natural appeal by placing flowers and plants all around. Located at 359-397 Railway Avenue, Williams and McDaniel’s Avon Place Apartments are an ideal option situated in the charming city of Stratford.
