Hydrangea: flowers in winter

Hydrangea spp., known in English as hydrangeas and in French as hydrangées or hortensias, are shrubs native to south and east Asia, and North and South America.

Here in Toronto, these are probably the only flowers you can see outside in the winter (unless they are buried by snow). The flowers persist for months, drying to a light brown but remaining attractive.
