#1 Pansy


Plant pansies in the fall and they will reward you with blooms in the late winter. You can find this flattened face-like flower in a variety of different colors.

#2 Calendula


Calendulas love cold weather and will bloom until the hot days of summer. It is not, however, frost-tolerant. Choose a sunny spot for this flower where it will get at least six hours of sun daily, and it will reward you with beautiful yellow or peach blooms.

#3 Dianthus


Often called sweet william, you will love these flowers that are available in several different colors with reds and pinks being the most popular. This choice for gardeners in zones 6 to 9 often will keep blooming until summer.

#4 Snapdragon


You may need to mulch around snapdragons in the winter to help them overwinter in zones 7 to 10. This plant that can grow up to 4-feet-tall produces dragon-shaped, tubular, two-lipped, closed flowers.

#5 Sweet Alyssum


Gow this seed directly into the ground in late August, and you will have dense white clusters of sweetly fragrant, tiny, white four-petaled flowers throughout the winter.

#6 Cyclamen


This plant that blooms throughout the winter puts on a solitary flower that is red or pink in November and will keep blooming until April. It needs regular feeding and watering while it is blooming, but once it is done, then stop feeding and water it infrequently.

#7 Swiss Chard


Swiss chard grows up to 24-inches-tall in zones two to 11, so almost everyone can grow this winter bloomer as an annual. It produces small green flowers in its second year, but it is mainly grown for its green leaves.

#8 French marigold (Tagetes patula)


French marigold is a compact annual that blooms from June to the first hard frost. Most plants produce yellow or orange flowers, but red and purple options are also available.

#9 Nemesia


Nemesia thrives in zones 2 to 11, but you need to provide some afternoon shade, except in the coldest climates. Plant this option in humus, evenly moist, well-drained soils, and be rewarded with two-lipped tubular flowers in late winter and early spring.

#10 Sweet Pea (Lathyrus odoratus)


This sun-loving plant thrives in zones 2 to 11. Deadhead the flowers after they bloom to encourage new blooms to appear. Fragrant, keeled flowers have traditionally been purple, but you can now find sweet peas in various colors.
