Plants for Any Weather

Posted on November 28, 2018

With November here and the winter ready and willing to come out of retirement at any moment, it’s easy to forget about your yard for the season. After all, in New England, snow is sure to cover it up for a majority of the winter and leading into spring. Even on mild years, grass and plants seem to just fade away with the fall. This doesn’t have to be the case. Talk to your local landscapers in Boston to learn about all the plants that stay green year round. For now, here are a few plants to add color to your winter wonderland.

Green Mountain Boxwood

If you’re looking for shrubs, ask landscapers in Boston about Green Mountain Dogwood. These plants can grow to just over five feet in height. You can also plant them in a container to control how tall they get.


Arborvitae is a species of evergreen shrubs that are great for landscaping. If you’re looking for a little privacy in your yard, these shrubs can grow up to fifteen feet tall. While they’ll require pruning to keep their height in check, emerald arborvitae stays green throughout the winter. Your yard will look like it’s filled with mini Christmas Trees.

Red-Twig Dogwood

The red-twig dogwood plant is a winter must-have for any yard. Their colors naturally fit the season. With grey-green leaves, white trim, and bright red stems, you have all your holiday colors in one plant. Once the snow hits, these plants stand out to brighten your home.

Don’t let the snow whiteout your yard this season. Keep the vibrance alive all year long with plants like these. For help deciding on shrubs for your home, talk to your local landscapers in Boston. Contact Cataldo Landscaping and Masonry at 781-304-8900 or visit us online.
