Winter Blooming Plants with Kristin Yanker-Hansen

Part of the From the Ground Up Workshop Series

One of the most common requests landscape gardeners hear from their clients is for year round color. We are lucky that our climate allows us to grow plants and flowers for color as well as cutting in winter, spring, summer and fall. Even though we live in an area with winter frost and extreme summer heat, it is possible to fill our gardens and vases with foliage and flowers from the garden year round. We are also lucky we have experts like, Kristin Yanker-Hansen, flower garden specialist and former President of the California Horticultural Society, to show us many varieties of plants and flowers she has personally grown which are suitable for our chilly winter temperatures and rain.
