Adding color to your garden during the late fall, and early winter months is a great way to help it look fresh and alive even as the snows begin to cover the landscape.
Here are some great winter berries that will provide some colorful accents against the frosty winter landscape.
- Coralberry: The bright, pinkish-purple berries of this native, deer resistant shrub make this a great choice. It’s also a fantastic shrub to plant when trying to prevent erosion within moist, well-drained soil in the garden.
- Winterberry : If you love the Kansas City Chiefs, you’ll love the way the beautiful berries of this common plant match the colors of the team throughout the football season. It does well in full sun or partial shade, and requires medium to wet soil.
- Chokeberry: The white and pink flowers, along with the red berries of this shrub taste great when mixed into jams and jellies. It thrives in full sun and partial shade, and will grow to between six and eight feet tall in moist, well-drained soil.
