It’s always nice to look out the winter on a cold Minnesota day and see some of the plants shining brightly.  Most of the time the plants that are visible are the ones that stick out above the snow showing off one unusual attribute.  Below is a list of plants you should considering incorporating that will be sure to make you take notice.
