5 Festive Winter Plants

Contrary to popular belief, it’s very possible to have a beautiful and healthy garden in the winter time. There are a wide variety of plants that can be grown successfully during the cooler months and with a little bit of know-how and some TLC, they can thrive wonderfully into the spring and even the summer of the following year.

At Marvin Gardens, one of our favorite winter plants has always been the Poinsettia with the whimsical Christmas Cactus not too far behind. They both add such a festive touch of cheer to any yard and also liven up interiors just as nicely!

A few others include:

Skimmia x confusa Kew Green: Shiny green leaves with fragrant greenish-yellow flowers. great for under trees in partial shade, drought tolerant.

Choisya ternata Sundance: A rounded dense shrub, evergreen with bright yellow-green glossy leaves. Scented white star shaped flowers in clusters in late spring.

Helleborus niger ‘Christmas rose: Clustered light green flowers on strong stems, forms bold clumps of deeply divided evergreen foliage.
