Multiseason plants have interesting flowers, foliage and more!

Of course, the first thing most people notice about a plant is the flowers. That’s a great starting point, but don’t stop there. Many plants offer other great visuals: colorful bark, great fall foliage, a bold overall shape, appealing texture, pretty seed pods. Choose several plants that have multiple seasons of interest, and you can easily have a garden with year-round appeal even in a small space. Let’s take a look at 9 plants that’ll add pop to your garden no matter what the calendar says! Click through the slideshow below.
