Popular winter flowering plants

There is nothing better than watching your plants flower during the year - especially during the months of winter! Choose plants that flower at different times of the year, rather than all of them flowering at once - this also helps you to spread the maintenance work needed throughout the year.

Below is a list of popular winter flowering plants. Exactly when they flower may depend on your local climate, when they were pruned and the weather during the growing season. Winter flowering plants typically look their best either very late in the autumn or very early in the spring.

Not all plants that are of winter interest will 'flower'. These plants need to be hardy and typically give winter colour via their coloured bark, leaves, interesting shape or texture as well as their flowers. Don't forget to include interesting verigated shrubs as part of your winter planting portfolio!
