Some of the plants listed below are strongly associated with particular times of the year. For example, sweet vernal is a wonderful spring plant (indeed, "vernal" means "pertaining to spring"). Victoria blue salvia is treated as an annual in the North and furnishes your landscaping with an exquisite blue color all summer. Winterberry's peak display period in my region (zone 5) is around the Thanksgiving holiday (U.S.). And yews boast a longstanding association with Christmas.
