What Flowers to Plant for Fall and Winter?
I get this question this time of year, every year, since I've been in the landscaping industry. Most people do not seem to think there are many choices for what they can use to liven up their home for the winter months. As you can see below, that assumption is a far cry from reality.

These flowers are a great way to transform your home's exterior into an warm and inviting place for family and friends during the upcoming holidays.
