As winter approaches in South Louisiana, it's time to get those flower beds, containers and pots filled with plants that will continue to bring a pop of color to your home and garden even on the dreariest winter day.

Louisiana has two planting zones, 8 & 9. When selecting plants, look for plants that will stay hardy in these zones.

With the help of Lindsey Rosenbalm, Marketing Coordinator of All Seasons Nursery & Landscaping, Inc. located at 2974 Johnston Street in Lafayette, we've come up with the best options for your home and garden this and every Louisiana winter.
