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.

Johnny-Jump-Up

Viola tricolor • Zones 3 to 9

This old-fashioned classic produces a plethora of charming yellow, blue, violet and white flowers. Seeds planted the previous spring will bloom in fall and often hang on through winter. Johnny-jump-up thrives in containers, so if you live in a cooler climate, sow it in a planter and bring it inside when the temperatures plummet. You’ll be able to enjoy the colorful display even while there’s a blizzard raging outside.
