Potted plants for winter?

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 08:28

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

HELLO FORKERS!

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!
