Spring and summer gardens are known for their bright colors and vivacity. Fall has the beautiful changing leaves. Winter has bare trees...and snow? There are many plants that prefer actually prefer the cold weather and will bloom beautiful flowers amidst the falling snowflakes. There are even a few that will die off in the warm weather and reappear every fall or winter, with very little maintenance. Plants help bring a pond to life, adding color and fun. In the fall, before the ground freezes, plant some winter blooming plants around the pond and as the temperatures drop, wait for the flowers to peek under the blanket of snow. Your pond will look extra beautiful even if it’s shut down until spring.
