Looking for shrubs and plants with winter interest?
The gallery below illustrates some of the most common and easy to grow winter shrubs and plants. Many winter flowering shrubs and plants are, by necessity, tough flowering when the weather is often at its worst.
Some of these shrubs are scented, and all add cheer to the January garden.
Amongst the Hellebores, H. Niger is the one of the first early flowering Hellebores. This variety is aptly named H. "Christmas Carol" flowering very early.
