5 Best Plants To Grow In Winter

Even if there’s a chill in the air in some parts of the country, gardening season isn’t ended yet—right? That’s because the Winter brings a plethora of plants and flowers into bloom. Many perennials, annuals, and shrubs bloom during the coldest months of the year; even while there is still snow on the ground in some parts of the country. Check your USDA Hardiness Zone here before adding these plants to your garden to make sure they’ll survive the winters where you live; as it varies by location. After that, you can begin digging! Maybe wait till you’ve read our guide on the best winter flowers to grow and how to care for them to get the best results. There are a few things to bear in mind — Plant the perennials and shrubs before the earth freezes to allow them to establish their roots, and in temperate regions; they can be planted after the ground freezes.

In temperate areas, hardy annuals like pansies can be planted for much of the winter. Here in this post, we’d learn what are the best plants to grow this winter season! With a little forethought now, you may enjoy bright patches of colour in the form of flowers this winter, when you most need it.

Hellebores 

These lovely perennials, sometimes known as Lenten roses since they bloom during Lent, bloom in the middle to late winter, depending on where you reside. They’re tough as nails, despite their delicate appearance.

Black Tulips

Queen of the Night tulips, often known as black tulips, are the perfect sombre winter bloom. While tulips are typically spring plants, they are actually quite hardy and can endure low conditions; so if you live in a milder climate or are willing to take on the challenge, consider planting these for a late winter/early spring bloom (they need 8 to 15 weeks in the ground, so plant them during the fall).

Winterberry 

This is a deciduous holly, which means it loses its leaves in the winter. However, against a blanket of snow, its lovely berry-laden branches stand out. Make sure you get the “male” pollinator plant as well so it can produce berries.

Cyclamen 

Cyclamens in colors of pink, white, lavender, and fuchsia get along as a bright ground cover in moderate climes; and are sometimes sold as houseplants. Plant them under deciduous trees in the winter for winter sun and summer shade.

Witch hazel

In February or March, before much else in your yard blooms, this shrub produces wispy-looking blossoms on bare branches. They’re a wonderful addition to the landscape because of their fanciful appearance. Because there are so many varieties, make sure you plant the winter-flowering variety.
