Planting winter flowers

Winter flowering plants win the day as seasonal blooms deliver a display of bright, warm colour through your garden. Planting pastels can add a soft layer of colour to the garden.

Do not get discouraged in the absence of winter flowering plants as shades of green and gold can also add to the colourful winter garden. Planting evergreens which showcase different shades of green and some with leaves turning red are a brilliant sight to behold in the winter months. 

Grow Erythrina Caffra (Coral Tree) for its beautiful canopy of bright red flowers. Plants with colourful stems and foliage are best in winter as they offer that coveted colour to your winter garden.
