Brighten up Your Planters

 

Living in Northern California means you do not have to say goodbye to potted plants. You can keep them thriving outdoors well into the wee months of what those other states call winter. This fall, go bold, go bright and take advantage of the seasonal warmth. Consider the beauty and great novelty of Dwarf Pomegranates, Iceberg Roses,  pink or red Japonica or Camellia Sasanqua. Healthy Camellias will flower from winter into spring adding bright dashes of color even as the first spring bulbs make their appearance.
