Get your winter landscape to burst into vivid life! Remember to plant a few Winter Heaths. Evergreen, they are terrific plants thanks to their fabulous ability to change color year-round. Low maintenance, deer or salt resistant, winter hardy, drought tolerant (once established) and fairly easy to grow, they do not require much: decent drainage and some sunshine. Interplant them with Wood anemones to add cheerful colors. Enjoy!
