If you happen to reside within the Northeast, Mountain West, or Midwest your concept of winter curiosity is actually completely different than say, a gardener dwelling within the South. These of us who reside in cooler locales are sometimes glad with calling any plant that sticks its head above a snowbank “a winter stunner.” However in in the present day’s episode we’re holding the bar a bit larger and speaking about vegetation that basically do save their finest for the months of December, January, and February. We talk about shrubs that flower in winter, perennials which are evergreen, and even a number of bushes that each backyard (no matter geographic location) would profit from. Our particular visitor is from Montana, so if she will be able to discover vegetation for winter curiosity, you realize that anybody can.
