It's finally December and the year is coming to a close. The days are shorter and the air is cool and crisp, and the countdown to Christmas has begun! Although it's cold outside and the winter garden appears to be a work in progress, there are still many jobs to keep you busy in your garden in preparation for the sunnier seasons ahead.
In this month's collection, we have chosen hardy perennials that require minimal winter protection. Many have evergreen foliage that lasts through the bleak winter months, holding your garden together until spring returns with her eruption of new growth and beautiful colour. Plants such as Sedum sediforme 'Gold', Heuchera 'Berry Smoothie', Heuchera 'Melting Fire', Stipa arundinaceae and Veronica 'Georgia Blue' will add a touch of colour and interest to your winter garden with their coloured foliage in shades of purple, deep green, copper and golden bronze.
