I had an inspiration! I want to create a Winter Window box and exchange it seasonally with my summer windowbox. (The front of my new house is very plain and white and needs some colorful accents. Waiting to buy some shutters!)
I’m hoping to create a winter window box that will also survive through the summers so I can just plop it out front again come fall/winter. Thus, I’m looking for winter-hardy perennials.
What plants would work for this?
So far I’ve come up with Rock Garden Japenese Holly/Dwarf Winterbush.
What other suggestions do you have?
I’d like some sort of pine-needley looking plant—the problem is, none of these plants can grow too big…they need to fit in and survive in a container. I’d love something with white flower or red berries. Perhaps I can accents with Kale or winter cabbage…but I don’t think they come back each year?
