Winter Gardening: Striking Plant Ideas

Just because temperatures drop off late in the year doesn’t mean winter gardening has to follow suit. With some gardening basics and these winter blooming flowers and plants, you can boost texture and add hints of color to your yard.

Snowdrop

Galanthus • Zones 3 to 9

When it pops up in late winter, snowdrop’s bright-green leaves send the message loud and clear that spring really is on its way. The snowdrop requires virtually no maintenance and spreads readily. For a larger collection of these 4- to 6-inch plants, simply lift and divide bulbs after they bloom, before the foliage dies back. Snowdrop is especially attractive scattered throughout naturalized settings and under deciduous trees and shrubs.
