Trees with attractive bark add so much to the winter garden. If a tree can pull its weight in the dead of winter, it has a lot going for it and that alone can be plenty of reason to plant it. But the plants I'm showcasing below are more than a one-season-winter-wonder. In addition to a strong showing in other seasons by providing bloom, fall color, or drought tolerance (see individual notes below), I've selected these for their suitability for smaller gardens by virtue of their dwarf stature or relatively slow growth. ..

Inspiration for adding interest to the winter garden is everywhere. Garden books, magazines, and online resources are chock-full of ideas. It’s easy to extol the virtues of individual plant suggestions: colorful blooms, sexy bark, showy stems, handsome foliage, a decorative dried form, or delicious fragrance. Yup, there are some pretty fantastic winter gems on these lists and it’s easy to add one to your garden. Heck, if you’re really on top of things, you might even think about planting your new winter garden attraction where you can easily enjoy the seasonal spectacle from the cozy interior of your home when the outdoors is less than beckoning. ..

Taking the time to freshen the container plantings at your front entry will reward you all winter long and brighten your spirits every time you come home. Likewise, a window box planting can bring the outdoors in, where you can enjoy a foliage-rich scene from the cozy interior. ..

Autumn is the perfect time to step back, assess your garden's performance, and make plans for what you'll tackle next. While there's much to learn from observing what's working well and plants that are thriving, it's equally useful to learn from what's not. So it's a great time to take note, especially of those plants that are struggling and/or not performing as well as you'd hoped. ..

Late summer, easing into fall, is hands-down my favorite time of year—a bit less going on and a tad more time to enjoy it. Vacations are winding down, school's back in session, and spending less time watering allows for more time enjoying the remnants of summer still on display in my garden. ..
