Plants that Survive Winter

These are just a few quick ideas when you start to think about your outdoor landscape in the wintertime.  Contact LandCraft with any other questions and we are happy to customize your outdoor landscape in Minneapolis, MN.

  1. Coneflower (Echinacea)
    The coneflower does not maintain its beautiful coloring in freezing temperatures, it does come back in the spring, strong as ever. You just need to properly take care of in the offseason.
  2. Lily of the Valley
    Delicate plant appearance, but the lily of the valley is a tough plant. It has a poisonous nature that makes the plant resistant to deer and other animals in the winter.
  3. Blue Spruce
    The perfectly picturesque winter plant. And looks beautiful covered in snow.
  4. Wintergreen Boxwood
    This is another plant that looks great in a snow blanket. This type of boxwood is more resistant to common boxwood pests than any other variations.
  5. Catmint
    Its fragrant nature makes it a great, hardy alternative to lavender.  Resistant to deer.
