    • February 13, 2020 Brighten Your Curb Appeal with Winter Bloom
      Brighten Your Curb Appeal with Winter Bloom

      by Jeff Anttila for RedFin)

      Though your curb appeal might look less appealing during the colder months, that doesn’t mean your house has to completely lose its luster. There are a variety of plants and flowers that are at their best in the winter, bringing brilliant color and life to an otherwise drab driveway. Below is a list of winter time favorites by horticulturists from around the U.S. to help brighten your curb appeal this winter.

      Its blooms are sweet-smelling, globe-like clusters of creamy orange flowers, and they set before any leaves appear in late winter. The shrub has an almost architectural appearance and is truly stunning when covered in flowers.

      Winterberry

      My favorite plant for brightening curb appeal at this time of year is winterberry.  Ilex verticillata loses its leaves in the fall, but bright berries in a variety of colors - red or gold are favorites - remain on the bare stems. They create lovely winter interest, and are perfect for adding to cut seasonal arrangements as well.

      Anna's Magic Ball Arborvitae

      It’s our favorite because it has a bright yellow and gold color and really pops all winter. We especially love planting these next to other dark green arborvitae for a great contrast in color.  These small shrubs can also be grown in planters in the outside entryway for interest all year round!

      Two California native plants that add vibrant color in the winter are the bright orange-yellow 3’ to 4’ tall Sticky Monkey flower (Diplacus aurantiacus) and the lavender-blue 1’ to 2’ Douglas Iris (Iris douglasiana). Both are easy to maintain and low-water, and the Sticky Monkey attracts hummingbirds and is deer resistant.

      Witch Hazels

      We love native plants, and our native witch hazels (hamamelis virginiana and hamamelis vernalis) are shrubs that feature gorgeous yellow fall foliage and showy, fragrant flowers after leaf-drop in the fall/winter, or in late winter/early spring when almost nothing else is blooming.

      Kale

       

      My favorite plant in the winter is KALE!  Not only is it hardy enough to live through some of the coldest weather (even in Central Ohio), but it actually gets sweeter and tastes better in the wintertime. We grow it in our garden all winter long, and it sometimes even lives through the summer until the next winter!

      Ornamental Cabbage

      For curb appeal in winter pots we love ornamental kale and cabbage. Plant varieties that develop bright white, purple, or red centers in a large pot by the front door and you’ll be welcomed home by frost-defying "blooms" all winter!

      Christmas Cactus

       

      One of Potted’s favorite plants during the winter months is the Christmas Cactus. At a time of year when most things aren’t in bloom, this easy-to-care-for plant is at its bold and brightest. And it thrives indoors or out (depending on your cold zone)

      Xerographica Airplant

      The Xerographica airplant is an epiphyte (meaning it grows without dirt), air plants need constant air circulation to survive and should only be watered once a week. To water, rinse the plant in your sink and then let the plant drain overnight.

      Toba Hawthorn

      “A unique and underused ornamental tree. It is small in stature allowing it to grow in smaller areas.  'Toba" is one of the hardiest of Hawthorns.  In the spring it bears beautiful fragrant, large, double white flowers that turn to pink. 1/2 inch bright red fruit emerges in the fall and lasts throughout the winter.  Additionally, the interesting yellow bark that grows to be a twisted grey trunk  is an added ornamental feature.”

      We love to plant poppy seeds in the winter time for spring blooms!
