“If you have space, plant them between the bright white stems of Himalayan Birch.”
The gardening pro said this is the only plant on the list that might require more maintenance.
He explained: “To get the bright colour, you need to chop them off almost at ground level every spring.
“Then, over the summer, new stems grow up again and don’t look like anything through the summer.
“You get to the autumn, the leaves start falling off and you think ‘oh wow, look at those lovely bright red or yellow or orange stems’.”
Low-growing plants for colourful winter containers and ground cover:
Heucheras and Heucherellas
These come in a range of leaf colours from apricot to yellow, purple and silvery tones.
They are easy to care for and keep most of their leaves all winter.
