A Splash of Winter Color
I saw these lovely flowers by the entrance of my neighborhood in northern Atlanta, Georgia. It's the middle of November, a balmy 27 degrees Fahrenheit, and these plants are doing well. I thought I'd share this with you, so that you can see it is possible to still have a splash of color in your garden, even when the temperatures are dropping.
What are these plants? Let me tell you.
The back, tall gray plants are dusty millers. You can also see some larger greenish purplish bluish clumps. Those are ornamental cabbages - a perfect fall plant. The lovely red and white flowers are cyclamens. They flower almost all winter. The yellow flowers near the front are pansies, and the purple, vine-like plants are called weeping loropetalum.
Hope you enjoyed the little splash of color. If you're experiencing winter, stay warm!
