These colourful blooms are Chionophiles; a flower that can survive the cold winters conditions. Peonies can relish the harshest of winters (even -10℃). In fact, these luscious blooms flower better following winters.


These teeny tiny flowers blossom for most of the mild winters. They are tough and tolerant to light frosts and in colder regions, they pop back up on their own right after the snow melts. You will find them growing and flourishing right through Thanksgiving until Easter and beyond.


Winterberry (Scientifically known as Ilex Verticillata) is a species of deciduous holly. The flower survives and thrives in the chilliest and even mildest of winters. Though it drops its leaves in winters, its stunning and gorgeous red berry-laden branches shine brightly amidst the snow blanket.

Besides, it boasts of blooming (almost) throughout the year and looks stunning during wintertime. So, this winter, deck up your garden with this high resilient, resistant to pests and diseases, and easy to grow Catmint.
