The Colors of Winter


Author(s):
Abstract:
Plants in the Carolinas run the gamut of colors through the seasons--pastels in the spring, summer with many shades of green foliage, fall with vibrant gold and red-hued leaves. Winter is commonly overlooked with many individuals picturing it as dull and gray. Chase reminds us that there are colors to be seen in winter--winter skies shine with a blue intensity; a number of windflowers have their special winter niches; holly trees with bright red berries; mosses and lichens brighten the scene; and for a surprise color--yellow.
