Which Flowers Bloom Best in Winter?

Winter Flowers: Flowering Quince (Chaenomeles)

Flowering quince is one of the best choices for winter gardening newbies. While it is a bit thorny, it puts on a beautiful show of blossoms in the winter. It’s best to plant it in the spring or fall, and Flowering Quince serves as a great natural fencing. It’s very hard, and it can handle extreme climates and even neglect if you find it’s too cold or there is too much snow to take care of it for a couple of days or even weeks.

Winter Flowers: Snowdrop (Galanthus Elwesil)

Snowdrops are ready to burst out of winter gardens. These beautiful white blossoms generally arrive in late winter. Snowdrops are best planted under taller shrubs or in rock gardens.

Winter Flowers: Boxwood (Buxus)

These boxwood hedges are very easy to grow and shape, and they really add some life to your yard and garden when the snow and ice try to make your landscape dull and boring. The vibrant boxwoods can make your backyard look bigger and more refined.

Winter Flowers: Winterberry (llex verticillata)

Winterberry is a must have for anybody planning on doing a little winter gardening. Winterberry is almost like holly, and it hosts lipstick-red berries that are truly a sight to be seen. With these four suggestions, your winter flowers are going to be the envy of everyone who thought winter gardening was a waste of time!
