About Landscaping & Hardscaping In Tennessee.
Even though our Tennessee winters can get bitterly cold, it's still possible to add some color to your landscaping or patio during this time in areas such as Mt. Juliet, Lebanon, Green Hill, and nearby cities.
We've assembled a guide of a few of the best outdoor winter plants to use at your Tennessee home here.
With vibrant, yellow blooms that pop up in late winter or early spring, winter jasmine is a great shrub to add to your landscaping in the latter part of the year. The flowers are scentless and are about an inch wide. It grows in vine form, so it would look great over a retaining wall or fencing. They can grow anywhere from four feet to 15 feet in height, depending on proper trimming.
One thing to note about winter jasmine, however, is that it can be poisonous to dogs as well as humans, so if you have a dog or small children, you may want to plant this in an area of the yard that's inaccessible to them.
Blue spruce grows well in winter—in fact, it's commonly used as a Christmas tree. It thrives well in hardiness zones 2-7, and our area of Tennessee is zone 7. Start off with a small potted blue spruce and keep it in an area that gets full sunlight, as this evergreen plant ideally grows with six hours of sunlight per day. It grows in a cone shape and also produces cones that are around 3-4"...
