11 Plants You Should Never Prune in Early Spring
While some plants won't bloom if they're cut back too early, others need spring pruning. Cutting them back encourages new growth and lets you remove dead, diseased or damaged plant parts so your garden looks better and stays healthier. Plant this miniature rose, Sunblaze Cherry, in containers or in the garden; it matures at 1 to 2 feet tall and wide. Prune it back by about one-third in late winter or early spring to manage its size and shape. Check out the rest of our list of plants you should be pruning in spring.

20 Winter-Friendly Plants for Your Outdoor Space
Thread-Branch Cypress, also known as Japanese false cypress, has green-gold foliage that adds color and texture to an outdoor space during the winter. Hardy to Zone 4, this sun-loving evergreen can stand up to tough winters. Pro Tip: Choose a container that will allow a plant to grow for two to three years before it needs to be repotted. The right size pot for a slow-grower like threaded cypress is 6 inches wider than the root ball.

20 Winter-Friendly Plants for Your Outdoor Space
This tough succulent has variegated leaves splashed with cream and green that stay on the plant all winter long in Zone 6 and higher. It's a good pick for containers in sunny spots. This sedum only gets 4 to 8 inches tall, so it looks best trailing out of short, wide containers or paired with a taller plant. Pro Tip: Pair with hens-and-chicks (Sempervivum) or Spanish Dagger for a striking mixed container that can withstand the worst winter can dish out.
