Plants with Patrick – Adding Winter Interest

Are you looking for year-round interest in your garden? Well, now is the time to start paying attention to the beautiful fall and winter colors and begin including those plants in your own outdoor spaces. Some I find most beautiful this time of year are, the Oakleaf Hydrangeas with their vibrant fall foliage and perennial grasses like our native Bluestem with its copper fall foliage. Don’t forget the explosion of blooms on the Abelia shrubs like the ‘Copper Creek Abelia’. These plants offer amazing spring and summer color as well!

The best landscape design is one that works with its natural environment, not against it. The Rooted In team is uniquely qualified to offer guidance and design for native and adapted Texas plants, pollinator-friendly and edible landscapes. We understand which plants, trees, and shrubs can best withstand the cold, dry winters of Texas so your investment not only looks beautiful but lasts season after season. No matter your style, our designs can meet your needs, suit your tastes and capture your imagination!
