With autumn colors already starting to fade, you may be a little sad to see the beautiful colors coming to an end. Fall offers a great deal of color if you have trees, but it can be rather drab around the yard and garden. Winter can be downright gloomy! The cold and wet combined with the lack of color in the yard is enough to bring anybody down. Our folks at Greenwood Hardware don’t want you to feel down and out. We have put together this list of plants that will help you add color to your garden, all year around.
