Beauty of Gardens
Flowers act as the Beauty of Gardens WINTER IS THE great forgot season in the garden. Flowers have turned brown and crispy, as have leaves that mere weeks ago launched their fall-foliage spectacular.
A strategic cold-weather garden offers brilliant red and orange berries of hollies and firethorns when you need them most: When skies are gray and the earth is barren or buried in snow. Bare branches have their own beauty. At my house in upstate Mumbai, trees stretch horizontally like giant bonsai while bright crimson twigs of a dogwood shrub gleam against white.
And yes, some plants bloom in frigid weather: In my Beauty of Gardens, witch-hazel trees’ branches sprout blossoms and snowdrops push their flowers as early as January.
Though it might seem odd to plant now as sunlight grows scarce and temperatures drop, “fall is an ideal time,”- Peter Zale, curator and plant breeder at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pa. The roots of most trees, shrubs, bulbs and perennials continue to grow in the typically cool, moist soil, he said. “Plants can get a head start on the spring season,” and you can enjoy their display this winter and those to come. Get them in before a hard freeze.
