Hi, Susanne: Enjoyed your article and reading about what stays evergreen for you out in Colorado. Many of those same plants I have in my own garden and they stay green here as well, of course. Another one that stays green for me is Rudbeckia, and since this moved into my garden, I do not know the species. I just call it common Black-Eyed Susan. It self-seeds so readily that I end up pulling clumps of it out each year.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

I am so jealous, Angie and Susanne...
BUT today I had help and finally got the debris from the ice storm removed from my yard...and lo and behold, I have daffs, crocus, hellebores...all blooming beneath the tangle of limbs and branches. I could not even see them till now, unless I wanted to risk life and limb climbing through the madness.
So now I am not nearly as jealous as I was earlier when I first read your article. Of course along about next January, I will be jealous again. Guess I'll just have to look out at my holly and my magnolias, won't I?

Thank you for this informative, very well done article. Much appreciated.

Thanks for reading ladies. This surely isn't normal, I don't think. I have had such a year though, I think the green is a gift for my sanity. :) Enjoying every minute of it. Sorry to hear about all your damage Sharon! I'll be jealous of your magnolias in the meantime. Hope you're both staying warm! The reticulated iris are showing their faces now, too.

Thanks for taking time to write about your plant friends with winter color. I wish other DG would write about their evergreen broadleaf successes. Would love to see a forum started.
