Great Time to Discover Plants with Winter Interest

January 25, 2017

Several of our plants are showing their stuff during this splash of warm weather we are having right now.  This makes me appreciate that we took the time to discover plants that provide seasonal interest during winter.

Here are four low-care plants that we enjoy this time of year.   I say low-care because the only thing we do is give them a feeding in spring and mid-summer with Osmocote Plant Food.

Visit your local public garden or garden center to discover plants with winter interest that will thrive in your area.

Hellebores, also known as Lenten Rose, bloom during late winter and are totally deer resistant. (click photo to enlarge)

The red bark of Paper Bark Maple really stands out during winter when the foliage is off the tree.
