With the advent of the winter season, gardeners and landscapers are looking for attractive, interesting plants to add color, texture and interest. Conifers are one type of plant that fit the bill. For example, the bright gold Arborvitae (right) named Thuja occidentalis Anna's Magic Ball, provides color and form throughout the year. In fact, visit the "Shrubs for Winter Interest" on the Proven Winners website to get more suggestions for attractive woody plants for winter gardens.
This week on #Plantchat swap ideas for some of your favorite conifers hints from the team at Proven Winners!
