Beauty in the Winter Garden

The structure of the garden is more evident in the winter than any other season. At Dawn Gardens the grasses don’t get cut back until February so they are very visible.

Some details in the garden are more visible such as bark, winter foliage color, fruit and branching structure.

Strawberry Tree (Arbutus ‘Marina’) bark

Paperbark Maple (Acer griseum) bark

Mahonia ‘Marvel’ winter color

Ilex ‘Berry Nice’

Washington Thorn berries (Crataegus phaenopyrum)

Digger Pine (Pinus sabiniana)

A few plants bloom in the winter and here are a few examples:

Eryngium planum ‘Jade Frost’

Camellia sasanqua ‘Chansonette’

Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’

The flowers of the grasses are very dominant in the winter garden.
