Hello, my name is Nicholas Staddon. I'm with Monrovia. Today, we're going to talk about winter garden tips. Today winter gardening is becoming a great trend in the United States and we're going to talk about some of the super plants you can use and how you use them. There's an array of fabulous plants that you can enjoy during the season and a lot of these plants you can plant right up until late fall. The plant at the base of my feet here, this is a Euonymus called Emerald Gaitey which during the summer months has a variegated cream and green leaf. During the winter months it goes a great purple color. If you're in the warmer climates, you can have these wonderful succulents. This particular variety has a green and gold blade on it, just fantastic and the name, it's a variegated Dwarf Agave. Grasses are superb during the winter months and in the colder regions of the United States the one that has really taken yule by storm is a Calamagrostis called Karl Foerster. Karl Foerster just has this great upright mass, turns a straw gold in the color with seed heads that will blow your socks off. I've seen it standing up out of snow that's two or three feet on the ground. And don't let's forget our Junipers. This variety here is called Gray Gleam, the blues, the greens, some of the gold varieties for hedges, for single specimens during the winter month are some of the only color we'll have in our garden. It's a cornucopia of plants for you, your family and your friends.
