Winter Color and Texture in Garden or Lawn

Winter, for some of us, can be a time that is full of harsh weather and bare yards.

It can be difficult to keep a garden alive with minimal sunlight and cold air.

But believe it or not, it doesn’t have to be difficult at all. With the right kinds of plants and care, a beautiful garden in this harsh time is possible.

Here are some of the best plants to plant in the winter time.


Camelia- This flower is bright and refreshing compared to the somewhat dull colors that winter can impose on the land. The camelia flower blooms from fall until spring.


Red Twig Dogwood- This plant is more of a branch looking type. Its red color is intriguing and festive for the winter season. Fun Fact: The vibrancy of the red depends on the amount of sun the plant receives.


Corkscrew Hazel- This plant may require frequent trimming, but it is worth it because it has a unique look to it that can really add some individuality to your winter garden.


Paper Birch Tree- This tree is at its best in partial sunlight and mulch is very good for it, to preserve moisture, because it has to be planted in a shallow hole.
