Perry's Perennial Pages

Garden of the Month,  January 2001

A Vermont Winter Garden 

Many perennials can be left standing and not cut back in the fall, for their beautiful winter effects, especially in the north.  Below are a few examples of plants and vistas from my own garden in northern Vermont, from  midwinter 2001.  In a hurry or want an overview of some of these?  Then check out the Slide Show.
