Well, the cold weather has finally made it’s way out of here. While I know that we didn’t get anything like most of you got, we are ill-prepared for below zero windchills down here in the south. I’m from St. Louis, so I know cold, but I’ve grown weak in these past 20+ years in Southeast Tennessee.
Simultaneously as the warm weather blew in from the south, I headed outside to check on my winter garden. I know that I have posted a zillion times about my nandina. Can’t help it. It is the year-round garden workhorse. Believe me you would grow tired of photos of brown grass and bare trees.
Nandina is a sight for sore eyes in the winter garden, with it’s deep red new growth leaves and it’s bright red berries. Since it is in the bamboo family, it is super easy to grow and propagates easily. I think we have about 10 bushes around our yard and I’m guessing they all came from one or two original bushes.
How about you, what’s in your winter garden?
