Winters may be long and cold, but your garden can allay that dreariness and be transformed into a place of natural beauty with visually arresting textures, colors, fragrance, and flowers. Bark becomes an important ornamental element in winter when the shedding of leaves exposes trunks and branches and reveals its glory.

From warty to smooth, peeling to furrowed, tobacco to cinnamon-red, salmon-pink, or stark white, the variety of bark colors and textures is fascinating. Often, varying bark textures can be admired on the same tree, adding a most attractive and stunning character during winter. Don’t overlook the lenticels, those pleasing raised bands irregularly arranged along the surface of the bark!

Here is a list of shrubs and trees that will help you create beautiful winter scenes and let you enjoy the winter season in a beautiful new way.
