Creating Winter Interest Containers

While the rest of the landscape goes dormant during the winter months, your planting containers can still be full of color and life. Filling them with winter interest plantings is a great way to keep your property looking beautiful.

Using a combination of cut evergreens, winter berries, pine cones, gilded branches, holiday ornaments, and other winter items, containers that usually display annuals can be vibrant and attractive. Beautiful winter arrangements are not just for the holidays – the right materials can accent your landscaping from late fall through late winter.

A mix of materials makes for a more visually interesting display. Containers that utilize evergreens are best installed once temperatures are consistently in the 30’s to avoid browning. Typically, these installations occur the first week of December, or shortly thereafter.

TIP: Pinterest is often a great resource for ideas for your winter interest containers.

With a little planning and creativity, your home or commercial property’s landscape can be colorful and interesting throughout the winter season.
