Among the most beautiful winter-blooming flowers for your garden
Hellebores drape themselves in beautiful flowers in subtle tones of white and pink.
They are extremely hardy to the cold, and their nickname “Christmas rose” shows that they’re (normally) making their debut for that date.
Heather counts among its varieties one that is called ‘Winter heather‘, and you will marvel at its many flowers!
Its tiny pink, purple or white bells will provide superb appeal to your garden box, pot arrangements and flower beds.
Garden primroses can set off colorful fireworks on their very own!
Annuals bear many more flowers, whereas perennials have the advantage of blooming repeatedly year after year.
Pansies and violas will enliven the garden from the beginning of winter until spring.
They are virtually mandatory since they adapt just as well to garden boxes as they do to flower beds in the garden.
Smart tip about winter flowers
Try to plant new winter flowers on days that aren’t freezing: many are fine when roots are in the ground, but exposing them to the biting cold air could lead to transplant shock.
