Description

Winters may feel cold and dark, but your garden can lighten that dreariness with visually arresting textures, colors, fragrance, and even flowers. To create such a winter wonderland, you need to select the correct plants.

In this Rutgers Home Gardeners School @Home one-hour Plants for Winter Interest online course, learn about numerous plants that strut their bright berries, peeling barks, swaying seed pods, colorful flowers, and persistent foliage throughout the iciest months of the year. Instructor Bruce Crawford will focus on the best plants for providing pops of color, height, and structure to your yard, allowing you to not only have good garden “bones,” but wonderful visual appeal as well.

Don't let your home landscaping go bare and dormant during the season of snow and ice; learn what to plant where for year-round garden charm. Register today!
