Heath and heather gardens provide a rainbow of foliage in winter

On a gentle slope halfway between Shelton and Allyn, puddles of color light up the ground like a gigantic painters palette. The demonstration garden of specialty nursery Heaths and Heathers is made up almost entirely of its two namesake plants. Though a few are in bloom, most of the color is coming from a rainbow of foliage: red, pink, orange, yellow, green, silver, bronze and even black. Now is the time of year when those colors are most vibrant.
