A Sparkling Spring Border Idea with Heaths, Daffodils and Siberian Squill

Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Winter Borders, Spring Borders


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.

Sprinkle a few daffodil and squill bulbs to add cheerful colors. Then, just look forward to winter to enjoy!

Most plants are recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
