Winter Garden Containers

When winter weather finally sets in for Vancouver Island , it can be anywhere from October to February. We never truly know when our ‘fall’ season will end and the freezing, snowy weather of winter will begin, though we can still enjoy the festivities of winter holidays with creative winter container gardens.

As soon as your fall plants begin to fade or freeze, start your winter-themed container! There are lots of plants that do well in our cool climate that you can incorporate, however, we also suggest using evergreen cuttings, seasonal branches with berries, ornaments, and pinecones for creative and festive containers. We’ve listed some plants and décor you may want to try during winter in your containers as well as some web links to give you some inspiration on festive winter containers.

A short list of winter plants:

  • Annual grasses
  • Artemisia
  • Dwarf evergreen shrubs
  • Flowering cabbage
  • Flowering kale
  • Lamb’s ear
  • Sage
  • Sedum

As part of our maintenance contracts, we offer annual color rotations to keep your property looking its best year-round. We choose colors that match the season and look stunning in your landscape. For commercial landscape curb appeal to residential front porches, our installation crews can have your property looking fantastic with garden containers for every season!
