Winter Blooms

The holidays are now officially behind us, and the chill drear of winter has set in. Although it’s been a fairly mild season so far, this past week has really taken a turn for the cold. With peek planting time still a few months away, it seems like spring, and all the flowers and new growth that comes with it, is a long ways away. If you’re craving some color to chase away the winter blues, never fear. We have lots of gorgeous plants that are in bloom now that will provide some much-needed cheer all winter long.

Hellebore (Lenten Rose)

Hellebores are perennial and largely evergreen. Their flowers provide color and interest in the shade garden when other plants are dormant. In addition, their leaf structure is interesting enough to make them a foundation of the shade garden year-round, even when their flowers are spent. Hellebores are also deer resistant and somewhat drought tolerant. We have several beautiful varieties to choose from.

Of course one of our favorite plants for winter color is the pansy. Pansies come is a wide variety of colors, sizes, and shapes and work well in beds, borders, and container gardens. We have several carts full of the 4″ pots.

If you’re looking to add color, flowers, and fragrance to your winter landscape, try the Winter Daphne.

Winter Daphne has rosy-pink flower buds that open to white with fragrant flowers that bloom in winter and early spring. Reaching 4 feet tall and wide, Winter Daphne is beautiful against a wall or near a patio or deck where its fragrance can be appreciated.

For blooms indoors, we also have many options to choose from, including these gorgeous Paperwhites.

For those DIY folks, we have plenty of bulbs for planting or forcing indoors. Or for instant gratification, choose from our pre-planted selections. These make a great gift when paired with one of our many decorative plant stakes or garden art.

Or add a few African Violets to your kitchen windowsill for an instant burst of brightness.

And we have tons of stunning plants to choose from in our indoor garden, including some really incredible orchids.

As always, we are here seven days a week for all your gardening needs. Stop by and see us today!
