Create a Garden with Great Winter Interest
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, fragrances, and flowers. To create such a beautiful winter scene, you need to make sure you select the right plants.
Which Birch to Choose for my Garden?
Impervious to cold and wet, low maintenance, and deer resistant, birches are terrific additions to the landscape. Often grown as specimen trees, they look spectacular when planted in groups of three or more.
Birches are shallow rooted, therefore many herbaceous plants struggle when planted close to their roots
Shrubs and Trees with Attractive Winter Bark
Bark becomes an important ornamental element in winter when the shedding of leaves exposes trunks and branches and reveals its glory.
