It’s been cold this last week – daytime highs below freezing, nighttime lows in the teens, and we’ve had a little snow. However, a few of the backyard plants seem to take the cold in stride. This Christmas Fern (Polystichum acrostichoides) is still quite green.
The Golden Ragwort (Senecio obovatus) is one of my favorite ground covers. I look forward to its early spring blossoms. However, right now I’m enjoying the green it adds to the winter garden.
