As the seasons change in Colorado we see drastic changes in colors outdoor, including our own gardens landscapes.

What was green and even lush mere months ago is now brown and yellow with occassional pops of green thanks to evergreens.

One of the questions posed often to Camelot Design this time of year is how to keep the landscape looking beautiful despite cold, less light, and harsh winter conditions.

I like to incorporate trees, shrubs, and groundcovers that can withstand winter and still look fabulous when gazing out the windows of your home and into your landscape.

Here are some ideas for perennials that help to make the landscape look good through the coldest months of winter:

  • Celtic Pride Siberian Cypress
  • Ajuga Burgundy Glow
  • Wintercreeper (White Album Euonymous)
  • Woolly Creeping Thyme
  • Winterberry Holly
  • Cotoneaster
  • Dogwood (shown in photo)
