Any garden can look great in spring or summer, but it takes real preparation and research to have a garden that looks great in fall and winter. It also takes discipline: garden centers are always stocked with shrubs that look fabulous at that moment, making those that don’t come into their own much later in the season easily passed by. However, it pays off to always add a few shrubs to your landscape that will look wonderful when the rest of the garden is fading. And, it pays off dividends to pick plants that make great cut branches in fall and winter, giving you the chance to create your own unique arrangements and décor during the holidays and beyond.

Here are ten shrubs – five for fall, five for winter – that look great in the garden, in the vase, and more. While they may not be at their most exciting in spring, when the temperature drops and things start to get gloomy, you’ll be mighty glad you added them to your planting list.
