The Earth has got four seasons in a year, that is, spring, summer, autumn, and winter. With most flowers being season-specific, flowers and these seasons are warmly bound together. Different flowers blossom in different seasons, hence the close relationship between the two. However, there are some flowers that are not affected by the changing of the seasons and, therefore, can be found throughout the year. Some of these flowers include Aster, Carnation, Gerbera Daisy, Asiatic Lily, Bourvardia, and Chrysanthemum. This post is a little winter flowers guide that will help you choose the best plants for winter!

Winter is the coldest season of the year. It goes from February to December in the Northern hemisphere and from June to August in the Southern hemisphere.

Some of these beautifully warm flowers include Alstroemeria, Amaryllis, Carnation, Protea, Queen Ann’s Lace, Roses, Star of Bethlehem, Statice, Chrysanthemums, Cyclamen, Evergreens, Gerbera Daisy, Lily, Asiatic Lily, Casa, and Helleborus.

Winter flowers: a great choice
Let’s go on with our winter flowers guide! Among the best flowers to plant during winter there is the Primrose, which lasts from winter to spring and has soft lacy flowers in lavender, magenta, pink, and white hues bringing out a bright, sweet fragrance. There is the Lavender, which flowers during winter and requires minimal watering. You can also plant the Paper Daisy, which does perfectly in a drained soil, spills over walls and covers the ground with its white petals, yellow centers, and blue-grey foliage. Another option is the Hardenbergia, which is a flowering climber with white and pink flowers that blossom well during the coldest days of the winter season. You can choose the Bergenia, too. It is a bright five-petal flower that grows in clusters and opens its buds during winter. Last but not least the Daphne, a very sweet smelling winter favorite that has clusters of small pale-pink flowers during winter.
