When I design landscapes I like to think about the colors I am adding to the garden. I try to make design such that each season there is some sort of flower color. You really can create a garden filled with different flowers, where not all of the flowers bloom in one season.
In this video I share with you 3 plants that you should consider adding to the garden if you want color in the winter. These plants are very drought tolerant, require minimal maintenance and don't need to be watered much after establishment period.
Remember that in gardening you are only limited by your imagination and it is far easier to add color to your landscape with flowers. If you decided in a few years that you don't like that color then you can easily replace that plant in comparison to painting your house some funky color.
