Evergreens so welcome in January…

January is often a bleak month – but this is when the power of evergreen plants is so heartwarming – in my own garden my bamboo, Yukka, Euphorbia characias, Coronilla, Clematis armandii, box spheres and my Phormium are all giving plenty of evergreen to power through the cold and grey of the New Year weather.  This is the view from my sitting room window taken through the glass on a bright day last week.

And here are great evergreen box sentinals at a client’s garden…

And of course the evergreen of houseplants always lifts the spirits in winter.
