5 winter plants to spruce up your home garden

2 min read

If you’ve associated winter with gloomy days and a lack of plant life because greenery can’t survive frigid temperatures, think again. There are actually various plant and flower options out there that can thrive in the winter months with proper care and gift you with beautiful blooms when spring hits (or oftentimes sooner).

Here, we’ve gathered five vibrant options that can help you spruce up your outdoor garden space, or even your front porch if you’re in search of something that holds up well in a pot. Take your pick and prepare to have your spirits lifted.

Willard & May Snowdrops

Snowdrops – Galanthus Nivalis – 15 Bulbs Per Pack

$14.95


As the name implies, these bulb-flowers are snow-colored, but even so, they can liven up your outdoor spaces even in the gloomy winter months. Known to last from winter to spring, they can be just what you need to lift you and your loved ones’ spirits as you count down to warmer weather. This inexpensive set comes with 15 bulbs per pack.

CZ Grain Store Red Dogwood Cuttings

4 Red Dogwood Cuttings to Plant

$15.98



Red dogwood shrubs are another great option to brighten up your outdoor garden or greenspace in the winter. Their foliage tends to fade to give way to bold stems that can actually complement a plant like the above-mentioned snowdrops well. Dogwoods tend to need pruning, so this pack of four cuttings that are ready to plant can help you cut down on some of that initial maintenance.

Three Company Store Healthy Live Pansy

Pansies are a common sight in public parks and gathering spaces, and they can have just as much a place in any home garden. Choose from a variety of mood-boosting colors for plants that will thrive in cold temperatures in your winter garden, at an affordable price for three plants to boot.

Blooming & Beautiful Arctic Dawn Camellia

Shi-Shi Gashira Camellia Shrub

Shi-Shi Gashira Camellia Shrub

Brighter Blooms

$39.99


If you’re on the hunt for a beautiful winter plant that grows well in pots, a winter camellia plant may be your best bet. Potted camellias are relatively low-maintenance, only requiring fresh potting mix every two to three years after outgrowing their potted containers. While these pink-flowered plants will thrive outdoors, keep them in a shadier spot, as they may weaken in the sun.

Shrub Frostproof Gardenia

Shrub Frostproof Gardenia 2.5 Qt, White Blooms

$29.99


This beautiful potted plant is a great option to brighten up your porch in months with minimal sunshine. You can expect to see its white blooms pop in the spring and summer, which are sure to be worth waiting for.
