The gardening season doesn’t have to end after the first frost. Many annuals, perennials and shrubs show off in January and February, even in the coldest climates. To enjoy that splash of color, plant these beauties now before the ground freezes in your part of the country. And read the plant tag or description before buying to ensure a plant will survive winters in your USDA Hardiness zone (find yours here). Then, start digging! With a little effort now, you’ll be able to enjoy these winter plants even on the shortest days of the year.
