When the leaves start changing, and the weather gets colder, your landscape can quickly become sad and drab. If there’s nothing but brown as far as the eye can see, you’re missing out on the chance to have a more diverse and seasonally changing landscape. Different plants thrive in different settings and seasons, and while most flowering plants are best in spring through early fall, there are still ways to add color to your landscape through the colder months.
Reds and Orange
Bright colors can be hard to come by in the winter, but it is possible. Adding small Japanese maples and evergreen shrubs that have red hues and keep their leaves longer is a great way to help make your landscape pop. Additionally, don’t be afraid to add some non-natural pops of color. Adding seasonal wreaths, or updating your signage to a bold color, can make a huge difference. Plants that have seasonal fruits and berries are another great way to make your landscape festive and stunning. Holly plants, for instance, stay a dark and glossy green with contrasting bright red berries all through the winter.
One of the best ways to keep your landscape looking great all year long is to add in a variety of evergreen plants. Evergreens come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and colors which means that they can add a lot of variety and interest to any landscape. If you’re looking for a way to keep your space unique, make sure to look for some of the lesser known varieties of evergreen.
