Craving some color in your garden or home this winter? We suggest winter-blooming plants with durable flowers: witch-hazel, for example. Witch-hazel’s distinctive spicy fragrance and spidery flowers in shades of yellow, orange, and red make it a must for any winter garden. Despite their wispiness, the ribbon-like flowers are remarkably durable, tolerating temperatures into the low 20s for several days. These plants are often ignored because they bloom in the winter, when gardeners are taking a break from the garden center and nursery and unknowingly miss witch-hazel’s most beautiful season.
