During the colder season of the year, there are many flowers that can't handle the harsh temperatures. However, did you know that there is a long list of outdoor flowers that can not only handle cold weather, but they will make your outdoor garden or patio look amazing! Your house will stand out from others in your neighborhood with some of these perfect choices of winter plants:
Mugo pine, also known as creeping pine, is a beautiful winter plant, along with English holly or boxwood, which is great for your outdoor patio. Perennials such as Heuchera are a wonderful choice. They’ve come a long way from the traditional Coral bells and are a true winter delight. Let’s not forget the ornamental grasses and lambs ear, which are also wonderful plants for the winter season. Sedum, hens and chicks, Persian shield, ivy, creeping wire vine or hosta are additional options. Ornamental cabbage, flowering kale and pansies can also be a nice touch as well. As you are deciding from the list of flowers and plants, be sure to select healthy-looking plants. Select the bushiest shrub when choosing a shrub. Avoid choosing the tallest.
You might also consider adding gourds or pine cones to your winter arrangement for a nice touch. Almonds and other shelled nuts can also add the most beautiful accent.
Now that you're knowledgeable of the many winter flowers and plants that you can choose from, now we must also choose the perfect container that can handle the cold temperatures as well. Containers made of fiberglass, metal, thick plastic, stone, or concrete are ideal. Even synthetic materials, wood or hollow logs will work just fine. Whichever container you choose, make sure it has one or two drainage holes so that it drains properly. You might also want to consider adding pot feet to the bottom of the container. This would help prevent the container from freezing to the ground.
