Blooms in your winter garden

Notes:

  • The beauty of the garden is subject to the colorful buds and flowers that the plants grow. There are many plants that produce buds, berries, and colorful flowers even in freezing cold conditions.
    • Winterberry Holly:

      This is a plant that produces colorful and round yellow, red and orange berries in winter. However, the Winterberry Holly needs enough sunshine in its initial stage of growth. Hence they should be planted in fall for it to give berries during winter:

Plants to grow in winter

Notes:

  • There are many plants that can be grown in a winter garden. That includes plants like pines, cedars, and spruces which not only thrive in winter but also look beautiful when covered with snow.
  • The only problem with these coniferous plants is they do not grow as quickly as you would want them to. Like the summer plants, these need enough water so having proper irrigation systems help and adding fertilizers is also necessary.
  • Apart from the ones mentioned earlier, there are small hedges like the Wintergreen boxwoods which grow well in the cold season where there is partial sunlight.

Trees that can add color to a winter garden

Notes:

  • The Coral Bark Maple is a good tree to have in your garden as they not only have beautiful looking flowers, berries, and leaves but they have a bark that is coral colored. That provides a complete contrast to the snow-covered plants.
  • Just like the coral bark maple, there is the Paper Bark Maple. This tree has exfoliating bark though it has no flowers or leaves in winter. Pachysandra can also be planted as it is an evergreen plant but that needs shade.
