In the no man’s land of the Winter garden, after the Japanese Maples have closed out their Fall show, there is the “hurry up and wait” for Spring. The landscape can look a wee bit barren if you don’t actively plan for the rainbow of color options that are out there waiting for you. Many people, just close the door on the winter garden and miss out on a plethora of foliage and bloom options.
Here’s one idea for your full sun spot with great draining soil- (here in the NW, that HAS to be said!)
All of these Heather’s were purchased during the cold, dark, wet months of Winter. I just couldn’t resist getting a bunch of these. Some are Spring blooming, some are summer or fall blooming. I don’t really care when they bloom as long as I can have color like this to look at during a long gray Winter!
Have you made a plan for your Winter garden color?
