Did you know there are plants that can add beauty to your landscape during the winter months? Winter interest plants have vibrant bark, shapely branches, or fuzzy, frosted seed heads that brilliantly decorate landscapes in the winter. Some people like to curl up with a hot cup of cocoa and watch snow fall, while others want to strap on snow shoes and experience the exhilarating cold. No matter what kind of winter person you are, winter interest plants will beautify your experience during the cold months. Here are a few examples of winter interest plants:
All evergreens remain beautiful in the winter, so choose any variety you wish!
Snowberry Dogwood (red, yellow and orange hued stems are also a choice decorative)
Good Seed Heads
Grasses (Don’t cut your grasses until the spring. Enjoy them all winter!)
