Winter. It is long. And, for a gardener, often boring and painful. But it can also be a wonderful season in the garden. There are a lot of plants that look their best in the winter months, and with the ground frozen solid, you can actually enjoy them because there aren’t weeds to pull or vegetables to harvest or aphids to remove. If your winter view of the garden is drab and ugly, consider adding a few of these plants to make the long, cold months more enjoyable.
