10 weirdest winter flowers
Winter weather is foul; it pushes us indoors and causes our garden to look lifeless and dull. However, there are several plants that are known for flourishing during the cold winter months. These weird winter flowers are not only surviving during the cold, but thriving by creating interest, texture and touch within our bleak, frosty gardens. Below are ten of the weirdest winter flowers available:
1. Camellias - With their glossy evergreen leaves and pink to brilliant red petals Camellias can really brighten up your wintery garden. They can survive throughout the entire year, especially during the colder months of winter. They will grow up to ten feet in height and prefer the shade to the light due to their leaves being likely to burn; so ideal for winter!
2. Evergreen Holly - Most of us would love to see Evergreen holly in our gardens at this time of year as it is known to get us into the festive spirit. With their splash of red colour and shiny green leaves they brighten up any wintery garden. It is best to plant holly at the beginning of spring, after the last frost and it will thrive into the winter. SerenataFlowers.com stock a wide range of holly ready for the winter.
3. Snowdrops - Snowdrops are one of the most famous winter flowers and are known for poking through the snow and are welcome guests in any garden. The Snowdrop is thought of as a 'weird winter' flower because of its unassuming nature that will survive even the harshest of winters. This small, white, bell shaped flower can grow up to ten inches tall. The best time to plant the bulbs is at the beginning of spring after the final frost of winter.
4. Bergenia - Bergenia is originally from Asia and can grow up to two feet in height and produces large amounts of colourful flowers from white to deep purple. During the winter months the flowers will begin to change colours to bronze, mauve and purple.
5. Hellebores - Hellebores are early bloomers and need very little care or attention so are simple to look after. They can grow to 15 inches in height and can spout flowers as early as January. Originating from Europe, the cupped blossoms from this plant range from white and pale pink to maroon, making this a beautiful winter flower.
6. Mahonia - Mahonia are striking shrubs that can reach anything between eight and 15 feet in height. They will produce bright yellow flowers throughout December through to March. This shrub is ideal for winter hummingbirds.
7. Grevillea Victoriae - If you like weird but wonderful flowers, you will love this one! The colours are like sweets; apricot orange, dark orange, red and pink. The buds open in a spidery starburst of blooms which will brighten up any garden this winter.
8. Oso Berry/ Indian Plum - The Oso Berry isn't the most colourful plant in winter but its white buds begin to show at the early stages of the winter months. They are low maintenance and need very little looking after.
9. Sarcococca - Sarcococca is also known as the winter box and provides a beautiful fragrance around the garden during the cold months. Normally they are evergreen with elegant white flowers and can grow from eight inches to six feet tall.
10. Winter Jasmine - Winter Jasmine provides early bursts of colour during the icy cold months of winter and can reach ten feet in height.
