Landscaping Foliage for the Winter

  • by

Most of the focus for gardening and landscaping happens in the spring and summer months. After all, that’s when you consider calling up the pool builders or sprucing up the flowerbeds. However, the winter seasons provide a perfect spotlight for a variety of plants that can have your yard looking magical.


Believe it or not, there are a variety of vegetables that can spruce up your yard even in the winter. Cabbages and kales provide a unique color and texture to the otherwise dry and pale landscape of winter. What’s more, they can even handle most winters once the cool night temperatures begin to harden them.


There are also a fair amount of flowers that can tolerate the winter. Colorful camellias, for example, are very hardy and bloom in the fall and winter. Winter jasmine can also provide a bright splash of color for a low level of maintenance.

Trees and Berries

Of course, then there’s the festive evergreens, holly bushes, and winter holly plants that will always make your yard feel cozy. But don’t overlook other types of plants such as witch hazel, red and yellow dogwood, cotoneaster, and winter jasmine. Each of these can add a unique splash of color to your yard and will actually be complimented by snowfall.

We hope this has sparked some creativity towards your landscaping this or even next winter. These colder, grayer months can seem long, but at least you can have your yard looking warm and welcoming.
