A North Texas wintertime yard does not have to appear lifeless. Adding cold-resistant plants to your landscape can add a fantastic pop of color, nostalgia, and cheerfulness in frosty North Texas winters. Turn your landscape into a winter wonderland by adding seasonal flowering plants and shrubs that thrive year-round in the ever-changing temperatures of Texas.
A lawn should be as cheerful in the cold winter months as it is in other seasons. Siara Designs® offers full-service landscaping and installation in North Texas to brighten up your home during the darkest, coldest times of the year by providing a variety of the best cold-resistant plants for frosty North Texas winters, making your landscape a place of life and beauty.
Color Your Landscape in Cold Weather
Drive away the gray by adding blooming plants throughout your landscape. Unlike most Texans, these flowering plants thrive during North Texas winters. While some of these flowers are seasonal beauties, others return yearly as a reminder that warmer days lie ahead. Our design team and installation technicians provide some of the most creative work in winter when busy seasonal landscaping is less about demand and more about comfort around your home.
Cabbage and kale are recommended for healthy humans, but they also enrich your garden since they’re one of the most cold-resistant, frost-friendly plants suggested for North Texas winters. These ornamental plants used in decorative lawn and garden services and landscaped beds come in a wide variety of colors spanning from winter whites to intense purples. Ornamental low-maintenance beauties thrive in cold weather and need minimal care, making even the frostiest winter days in North Texas a little cozier.
Snapdragons are colorful winter plants determined to brighten a landscape each year because they can self-seed in your flowering beds. Snapdragons come in various colors that weave themselves into the texture of any garden, spanning six to 15 inches tall, so there is no shortage of depth. Snapdragons come in shades that accentuate any decorative and landscape design taste.
Few plants conjure more thoughts of winter beauty than cold-resistant pansies. These delicate-looking but sturdy flowers are part of the viola family and brighten entryways or entire beds in a lawn. Pansies require very little attention to bloom and thrive, bringing joy through the depths of winter. These cold-resistant plants thrive in frosty North Texas Winters and continue to bloom until temperatures rise.
Thriving Cold-Resistant Shrubs
Most shrubs fare well in North Texas during the winter, but some add a splash of color when you least expect it. The designers and landscape technicians at Siara Designs can construct featured areas in your yard that allow you to experience the vibrancy of your lawn from a kitchen, living area, or bedroom window. We want you to feel our care and commitment to every landscape creation.
Even when your winter plants are not bloom producers, their lively hues of green add enough color assortment that you never notice the absence of flowering plants. It is only a matter of adding variety. Siara Designs has options that meet every North Texas lawn’s needs.
Deck Your Landscape With Holly
Holly is a plant that brings waxy green leaves and small clustered red berries to mind. But there are more varieties of holly than most ever realize. Add height in stonework or hardscaped lawn areas by adding a holly tree and draw the eye lower with varieties of holly bushes.
Consider the possumhaw holly to enjoy its brilliant red berries and attract bright-colored birds to your yard to enjoy a winter meal. These berries become more palatable for birds after the first snow or cold snap, enhancing the flavor for wildlife.
With selective clipping, sprigs and branches of this holly can be added to vases of flowers or greenery in and around your home. If you decorate for the holiday season, accentuate creations with landscape lighting to add warmth and glow. The winter nights are longer, and landscape and accent lighting will keep you safe on frosty evenings and chilling mornings while accenting your winter-hardy plants.
Camellias add a touch of nostalgia to winter landscapes. It only takes snipping a few blooms to add to an indoor vase to provide a fragrant hint of enjoyment to your day. Their bright, glossy leaves are a welcome sight any time of year, and their colorful blooms grow in a variety of colors that arrive just when you need them.
These hardy plants can grow into sizable shrubs but are slow-growing, so they won’t easily overwhelm a space. It is recommended to protect these blooming beauties by covering them when a hard freeze is expected. Still, this minor detail is not too much of an inconvenience because winters never last too long in North Texas.
Winter honeysuckle offers bright blooms on cold days, enjoying full sun like many of us during the colder season. Its common names, such as Sweet Breath of Spring, Sweetest Honeysuckle, and January Jasmine, sound like a calling for spring’s arrival, but its blooms make even the frostiest North Texas day feel warmer.
Blooms form on the new growth of honeysuckle, so trimming it while it is dormant can create a more dense plant. Honeysuckle is a multipurpose plant that can be appreciated for its attractiveness and camouflaging abilities by allowing it to grow on trellises to provide privacy screening. It will meander slowly up strategically placed outdoor woodwork, such as a trellis, to hide the mechanical components of a home to offer stunning visual barriers.
