Grasses in Winter

The garden looks beautiful in the winter with the frosted leaves. Not only do the grasses look lovely, sparkling with winter frost, it transforms many garden plants and shrubs. Below are images of frosted Beech, Wallflowers and Cotoneaster berries looking lovely edged with frost. 

Grasses come into their own in winter, and the images show the grace and beauty of the grasses illuminated in the winter sun. They are easy to grow and you can create a grass garden in the smallest of areas or in the border. Grasses are low maintenance and very rewarding winter and summer. Before planting the grasses, check where the early sun falls in the garden to be sure you capture frost and sun together for the best effect.

Below are all images of Trentham Gardens in winter reminding us that a winter walk around a garden can be just as stunning as in the summer.

Frost in the garden on a winter's day transforms the humblest plant into a beauty.

You may not be able to work in the garden as the frost locks everything down into solid earth, but you can admire nature's handiwork in creating a glittering scene. Berries are very photogenic when frosted, often the focus of Christmas cards and calendars, but look at the humble wall flower, its stunning.
