In most areas of the country, winter is rather dreary. A look out your window usually shows a collection of grays, browns, tans and other drab colors. Maybe your yard is blanketed with white snow, and the sun is hidden by a thick blanket of clouds. It’s a far cry from the reds, yellows, and greens that we see during the spring and summer. However, winter doesn’t have to be without color completely and gloomy. Many plants bloom in winter that can add vibrant colors to your backyard. These plants can perk up your spirits on an otherwise gray day. While exact varieties of plants that flower in winter may vary depending on your hardiness zone:

1. Snowdrops

Snowdrops usually bloom in late November and will stay on the ground until near Christmas time. Some varieties will last even longer. Blooms are a white-green in color and turned towards the ground.

2. Winter Jasmine

Winter Jasmine is a yellow blooming plant that does well when planted on retaining walls and other areas where it has room to ‘drape.’
