A Home for Wildlife...

Not only is it beautiful to look at perennial plants with a dusting of snow on them, but plants left standing all winter long serve a useful purpose for wildlife as well. Mammals both large and small, along with birds and insects use herbaceous plants for anything from food to shelter. I like to think of the hydrangea plant in my side yard pictured above as a mini kingdom brimming with life.
