The winter blues are definitely setting in around here. But thankfully we have some plants outside that have saved their best for last. Today Carol and Daniel are talking about winter stunners—trees, shrubs, and even a subshrub that looks so beautiful in January and February, you’ll forget it’s technically “off season.” . Whether your winters are mild and wet, cold and dry, or you live where it snows seemingly every day, we have some options that will help liven up the landscape.

Expert Guest: Michelle Faraznik is the Chief Executive Officer of the American Public Gardens Association. She lives and gardens in Fort Collins, Colorado.
