Search criteria: Frost Tolerant

Frost tolerant plants have features that make them suitable for areas where the temperature gets down below zero degrees. In most cases a low maintenance, evergreen frost tolerant plant will be required, one that doesn't get that burnt look or even brown off completely during frosts.

This list of frost tolerant plants will help landscape architects and designers to specify plants that can handle frosts and that typically stay green during cold periods.
