5 plants in Bakersfield that look good even in the winter

Who says your garden has to look bland and lifeless in the winter? We certainly don’t. In fact, there are a variety of plants in Bakersfield that will keep your garden looking colorful and beautiful all year ‘round — even in the winter.

With that being said, let’s take a look at 5 wonderful plants in Bakersfield that your winter garden is guaranteed to love. And don’t forget! You can find all of these plants here at the nursery.

Snapdragon

Snapdragon

Nothing says beautiful and mesmerizing quite like a snapdragon. These beautiful plants are colorful, elegant, and hard to look away from. They can grow up to three (sometimes four) feet high and come in a variety of colors.

Cyclamen

Cyclamen

Not your typical flower, cyclamen are interesting, colorful plants that can thrive in shady areas and even indoors. They actually prefer cooler, darker areas, which means they’re ideal for the typical Bakersfield winter. However, if you are keeping your cyclamen outdoors in a container or pot, then you may want to bring them indoors during our hot summers or plant them in the shade.

Calendula

Calendula

Calendula is a beautiful, striking plant that can make any area stand out. This plant has a wide range of uses, and its petals are even edible. They require very little maintenance and prefer to grow in full sun or partly shady areas.

Ornamental Cabbage

Ornamental Cabbage

Yes, cabbage isn’t just for eating. These interesting plants can take your garden (or even a bouquet of flowers) to that next level. Their texture and colors are second to none, and they’re strong enough to even outlast a bit of snow. However, don’t let that fool you. They still like (and need) to see the sun.

Pansy

Pansy

Pansies are the flowers that keep on giving. They’re easy to grow, can outlast the cold, and are even able to bloom continuously throughout the winter and spring (however, they’re very hungry flowers and need to be fed often). Plus, these flowers are unique, colorful, and full of spunk. Like most of the plants on this list, however, pansies aren’t fans of hot summers.

Long story short, there are effective ways to keep your garden and lawn beautiful all year ‘round. You simply need to know where to look and how to keep those plants thriving. If you’re interested in learning about what plants in Bakersfield thrive during the wintertime, then you might be considering a new look for your garden or backyard. If that’s the case, check out this article on landscape consultants.

And don’t forget … all of these flowers are available at White Forest Nursery. Stop by to check them out.
