I was running down the Custis Trail yesterday and saw all this Winter Jasmine hanging along the retaining wall- lovely! Native to China, this is a wonderful early winter bloomer, suggestive of forsythia to come a little later.
Zinnias bloom for months of color. Cut them for beautiful bouquets and they will be even more prolific!
One of the hardiest, prettiest, most deer-resistant winter plants for our region.
Pansies are everywhere, but my favorite winter flowers are primroses!
