Winter garden plants
In order not to lose the greenery and the colors that surround our house, you can choose numerous winter plants that live well outside even in the cold season and unlike other, they do not suffer drastically the lowering of the temperature. The main and most famous are generally belonging to the family of winter camellias and cyclamens, they are species that bloom between autumn and winter and that, when the cold season is over, leave room for other plants that bloom in spring . In this brief guide we are going to point out different species that can be adapted to your green space and that can also be cultivated in pots to embellish terraces and balconies, indicating for each plant the main characteristics and colors that can make the exterior of your home stand out .
Winter camellias and lunar lemon
The particularity of the Camellias is that of the winter flowering, especially for the Camellia Sassanqua, a plant originating from Japan that has been introduced in Europe since the early 700s. This species blooms in October and March, does not need special care. It represents the ideal plant for those who have access to a vast outdoor space as they can reach considerable dimensions. It can in fact be buried in the flower beds and can be used to form hedges. The colors are bright and many nurserymen recommend accompanying camellias to other species with evergreen leaves. Flowers and fruits are therefore the secret of winter garden plants. In addition to camellias, for example, you can choose the Lunario Lemon, a unique plant that blooms and bears fruit every month, even in winter. In the harsh climate the lunar lemon yellow gives the garden a unique decorative appearance. This plant, widespread in the cold climates of the northern European lakes, has evergreen leaves, a white flower with purple contours and an intense yellow fruit, a mix of colors that make the lawn unmistakable.
Plants that resist the cold
If you have a large garden the advice is to use shrub species that bloom in winter and evergreens as an ornament. Lastly, among the ornamental plants that adapt very well to the cold, we recommend the Corbezzolo, also known as Albatro. Widespread in the coasts overlooking the Irish Sea, this small tree has a particular characteristic, a ripening of the fruit that comes after a year after flowering. So from autumn until late winter you can have new flowers and ripe fruits. The colors are bright with white flowers and red fruits. In order not to make up for the snow, our winter garden can be completed with the Christmas Rose, a plant from the Ranunculaceae family also known as Helleborus or Elleboro. This plant also blooms with snow, from December until March and offers flowers of 5 different colors, from white to pink. It can easily be found in mountain forests and there are different species crossed on the market with different colors.
Plants that bloom in winter
To make your green space original and alive even during the cold season you can select shrubs that bloom in this period, nature offers so many solutions and you just have to choose according to your taste. In Italy, for example, cyclamens and violets are used a lot, which can also be buried in a vase to adorn a balcony. Cyclamen is undoubtedly the ideal plant to embellish one's own terrace, its rosy flowers and different shades undoubtedly represent the main color of winter. The plant does not require special care and can be easily found in flower shops because it is mainly grown in greenhouses. From the cyclamen there are also special bulbs that can be chosen based on the color. It is a plant that lives well in a cool and moderately humid place, if for example it is kept in a vase you can maintain a moist state wetting the saucer during the day. He only fears ice and, if temperatures get drastic, he can repair the plant at home to protect it from night frosts. Finally, among the perennials there is the Viola, the most widespread is the Viola Tricolor species, also known as Pansy, a plant that in autumn and winter gives its intense flowering, with large flowers that do not fear the cold and frost. Pansy is in fact a plant capable of living in low light and does not need the direct presence of the sun. Very famous are the species of Viola that live in the areas of North America, areas affected by a cold climate for several months a year. Violets are plants with intense purple flowers and can reach up to 20 cm in height.
