This incredibly pretty planting includes plants of great winter interest that will lift your spirits during the dull days of winter.

A carpet of winter-flowering heathers including Erica carnea 'Myretoun Ruby' and 'Springwood White' is backed by the glowing crimson stems of Cornus alba 'Sibirica' (Tatarian Dogwood), the luminous foliage of Euonymus fortunei 'Emerald 'n' Gold' (Wintercreeper), and the tall, arching leaves of Molinia caerulea subsp. arundinacea (Purple Moor Grass), still topped with a haze of delicate flower spikes, that sway gracefully in the slightest breeze.

At the front, a sea of Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola' (Hakone Grass) completes this spectacular border, their thin brown-beige winter leaves continuously moved by the wind.

If you consider planting your own winter-interest garden in a similar fashion, do not hesitate to add some snowdrops, early bulbs and hellebores. 

Low maintenance, deer resistant and fairly easy to replicate, this planting includes top performing plants which have been awarded prestigious awards. Enjoy a glorious and colorful spectacle from winter to even spring!
