It’s wintertime in San Diego. While parts of the country are buried in snow, we’re lucky to be able to get out in the garden year-round! There’s plenty of color and visual interest to be found in winter gardens in Southern California. Here at Evergreen Nursery we’ve got all you need to keep gardening all winter long.
If it’s flower power you want, plant cool weather favorites like Pansies, Iceland Poppies, Cyclamen, and winter blooming Aloes. Berries are also perfect for bright pops of color in winter. Look for Pyracantha, Heavenly Bamboo, and Dwarf Yaupon Holly. Seedpods in various shapes and colors can add interest in winter landscapes. Trees like Crape Myrtle, Bottle Tree and Chinese Flame Tree are a few that have unusual and beautiful seedpods. Deciduous trees like Redbuds and Flowering Pears add beauty in winter by showing off intricate branch structures - plus they’ll reward you with spring blossoms! And you can’t beat the striking bright green bark color of Cercidium ‘Desert Museum’ on display this time of year. Ornamental grasses like Chondropetalum and Leymus ‘Canyon Prince’ keep garden beds looking full while adding texture and color.
