During the winter months you might struggle to find some interesting plants to decorate the home with. However, there are many great houseplants that are blooming during the winter. Here are some great plants for the month of March. Cacti and succulents are some of the most colorful, and easiest houseplants to grow.
Weigela Wine and Roses®
With its dark burgundy-purple leaves and rosy pink flowers in spring, Wine and Roses® weigela will woo and intoxicate you. The leaf color intensifies to near black in late summer and does not ever fade to green. Great as a specimen, hedge or in masses. Plant variegated or yellow foliage plants in front of these shrubs for a bright contrast. Matures to 4 to 5 feet tall and 3 to 5 feet wide.
Petunias and Wave Petunias provide the most flower power for a sunny area, plus they come in a multitude of colors. Frequenters of Platt Hill Nursery marvel at our display hanging baskets that grow to over 3 feet tall and wide. They're a great addition to any planter, hanging basket, or garden bed.
The Dwarf Korean Lilac is a hardy shrub that will bring your garden the wonder fragrance of a lilac without the space requirement of a full size lilac bush. Purple flower buds will develop in May and begin opening into a white-purple blushed blossom. These Lilacs flower later than standard varieties. If you already have Lilacs, you'll be able to extend your blooms and arouma even longer. Bloomerang Lilac is very similar cultivar of the Dwarf Korean that will re-bloom during the summer.
