There are no plants that will perform well during the winter months in your gardening region but a few, if left unpruned, can add interest due to their spent flower stalks or foliage. European ginger, bishop's hat, ferns, Lenten rose, ornamental grasses, and upright sedums (such as 'Autumn Joy') will usually persist in the winter months although they will not grow nor will they flower. You might plant a few now so they have time to establish and flower in the fall. Then just sit back and admire them during the winter months.
