Potted plants for winter?

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 08:44

You know they can be quite tactile plants Orchid.  Many of us run our hands over a heather flowering over winter.   bright purple flowers on a cold snowy day?

I have a nice patch of heathers .......couple of pittosporum Tom thumb. (check this out too) and a silver grey mounded juniper with them .......making a nice winter scene.  I love em.

Feel a bit out of it right now.  A chat on the radio about recognising our own faults had me scratching my head in great confusion.   I don't have any faults but I will try harder to see if I possibly do

Winter flowerimg heathers too.  Tough, easy and evergreen.  Winter foliage on vsrieties like foxhollow (yellow) and dark almost orange foliage on .ann Sparkes. Flowers too all through late winter into spring.

Ophiopogon nigrescens is a black grasslike plant that looks great in a terracotta pot.

Phormiums provide fantastic foliage colour .....vsrieties from almost white to yellow to pink to red .  

Euphorbias like Tasman tiger have white green foliage and rubra has dark plum foliage ....and both have yellow spring flowers

Shrubs like Daphnes will provide colourful evergreen foliage plus fantastic winter scent

No fishy, It will just be continuingly made to think  it must produce flowers.  Cosmos will give up the ghost when the frosts arrive.  No doubt some scientist will prove we are abusing these flowers!
