The Q&A Archives: winter flowers

Question: What would be the best flowers to add lots of color for October-January.My front yard looks so naked in the winter.

Answer: Some perennials come into their glory in the fall and winter months so I know your garden will remain colorful all year around if you include some Beach Sunflowers, hardy Begonias, Blue Daze, winter blooming Blue Sage (Eranthemum pulchellum), African Bush Daisy, garden mums, flax lily, Leopard plant, Leonotis, Persian shield, and Philippine Violet (Barleria cristata). The main bloom time for these are October through April so you should have a lovely winter garden.
