Still other plants, like hibiscus, clerodendrum, and pelargonium, will simply continue performing as if it’s the Fourth of July, regardless of the fact that there’s 6 feet of snow on the ground outside.
Plants like these — including some of the specimens pictured in this slide show — will reward you with color and fragrance during winter and can be returned in spring to grace your garden beds once more.
