Winter Flowering Plants
Winter plants not only survive outside in the cold and frosty conditions, they actually produce blooms with colorful flowers depending on the plant!
These perennial plants will brighten up your pots, walkways, and beds with their spots of color in the dead of winter.
Obviously, one example of a winter-blooming plant is the Hellebore.
Hellebores are pretty low maintenance which makes them suitable for any level of gardener, especially beginning gardeners.
As long as they have full to partial shade, they are tough, resilient plants that bloom with elegant, downward-facing flowers.
