4 Reasons Hilary Duff Is Our Favorite Millennial Plant Lady

Calling all millennial plant lovers: We have found our leader, and she's been right in front of us this entire time!

Hilary Duff, TV star, newlywed, and mother of two, was spotted out and about in Los Angeles in an A+ leather jacket, smart sneakers, and a slew of new succulents to add to her growing plant collection. This caught our eye not only for all the reasons mentioned above but also because celebrities (they're just like us!) love low-maintenance plants too.

In case you missed it, Duff has been sharing peeks into her plant-lady lifestyle on Instagram for years. Scrolling back through her fashionable and family-focused feed, we spotted several cute moments in which Duff and her brood are basking in the moment and surrounded by greenery. Not only were plants the backdrop of her gorgeous December 2019 wedding to music producer Matthew Koma, but they were also featured prominently in photos of Christmas tree shopping, a date night, and, of course, a cute selfie at the plant store.

Keep scrolling for four reasons Duff is our favorite millennial plant lady plus several easy-to-care-for plants that will help brighten up your space.

Case in point: Duff smiles as she carries an assortment of succulents (yes, cacti are part of the succulent family!) home. Perhaps these are for a high shelf in baby Banks's nursery? 


2. She Loves Lush Leaves

Duff keeps it real with unfussy plants that fit in with her fun family. It looks like both Banks and Luca were having a blast while Christmas tree shopping!

Duff captioned this photo, "When I take them plant shopping," so you know her hobby is a regular family affair—even if she's the only one really into it.
