Decorative Plants For The Winter

When selecting plants to decorate your home for the winter, it’s important to consider their ability to withstand cold weather and low light conditions. Here are some great options that will add a touch of color and beauty to your winter landscape:

1. Holly (Ilex)

Holly is an evergreen shrub that produces bright red berries in the winter months. The berries are a great source of food for birds and add a pop of color to an otherwise dull winter landscape. Holly is a low-maintenance option for your garden.

2. Red and Yellow Twig Dogwoods

Red and Yellow Twig Dogwoods help provide additional winter interest with their colorful stems. The Red Twig Dogwoods come in different sizes and leaf colors so they also look great in the summer time as well. They are hardy plants that can withstand cold temperatures, making it the perfect addition to your winter garden.

3. Pansies

Pansies are not only great for spring and summer gardens, but they also thrive in cooler weather. They come in a variety of colors and add a cheerful touch to any winter landscape. Pansies are also easy to care for and can withstand cold temperatures, making them a reliable choice for winter decoration.

4. Evergreen Trees

Evergreen trees such as spruces, firs, and pines are known for their ability to retain their green foliage all year round. These trees not only add a touch of color to your landscape but also provide shelter and food for birds during the winter months. They are also low-maintenance and can withstand harsh winter conditions.

5. Boxwoods

Boxwoods are another option to provide winter color. They typically hold their glossy green leaves throughout the winter. They come in a variety of sizes to fit any landscape and are also typically deer resistant.
