Yes, you can blame me Wills. I can take it.
Winter isn't a time for bright coloured perennials. There are gardens open through the year, Natianal Trust , RHS and a few NGS, go and have a look at what's impressive. It won't be a few worn out left overs from summer.. It will be bark, stems, dried grasses and seed heads and winter flowering shrubs. And then the bulbs start.
I forgot to mention Cyclamen coum previously, tiny but delightful in mid winter
