We have selected a few of our personal favorite winter plants that will add more green, interesting shapes, and will even blossom outside your window in the heart of winter. These plants will make terrific additions to your winter garden plans.

  1. Planting a holly shrub is a great and convenient method of sprucing up a dreary winter landscape. The majority of hollies are deciduous, which means they will not lose its leaves over the winter, giving you much needed color to your landscape during the dull Connecticut Winter.
  2. Plume grass is a beautiful feature to add to your landscape during the winter months. Plum Grass produces a feathery arrangement from early fall into late October, which can potentially continue to flourish well into the cold winter months. Plum Grass can also be removed from your outdoor landscape and be harvested for indoor arrangements. Plume grass when it is bunch together in a decorative fashion, can may spread to 5 feet. You must take into account that it possesses weak stems, which are particularly vulnerable during the cold winter months when high winds may occur, so it may be in your best interest to plant it in a wind protected location.
  3. Babyberry shrubs are very popular for winter landscape design because they are very adaptable and require extremely low maintenance during the witner months. Barberry shrubs make great additions to the landscape and are known for their rich color and year-round garden interest. If you live in a heavily populated area, they are known for thriving in urban conditions and can even be grown inside a container of some sort.
  4. Birch trees make will make a wonderful addition to your landscape. Birch trees can grow to be over 90 feet tall or more and possess beautiful fall leaves that turns bright shades of orange and yellow. Another popular feature of birch trees is the bark that begins to peel off the tree as the cold weather sets in. Depending on the type of birch tree, the bark can peel off in a very thin fashion and in the majority of time it appears as a white color.
  5. The Winterberry holly is a deciduous type of holly, which will typically shed its leaves in during the early days of November, leaving behind an array of bright red berries.
