Even with these warm days, winter is still upon us. Here are some tips to add interest to your winter landscape. Color can be added by using plants with bright stems and twigs, especially in a group. Red and Yellow Twig Dogwood are a great choice for this. The bright red color of the berries of a Winterberry Holly or some Crabapples are striking against white snow. The yellow and orange blooms of Witch hazel are most welcome at the end of a long winter.Texture can be added by using deciduous plants with interesting bark, such as Kousa Dogwood, Paperbark Maple, Climbing Hydrangea or River Birch. Of course, the addition of evergreen plants whether it be a smaller shrub like a Gold mop Cypress or a taller tree like a Lacebark Pine add season-long texture and color. Remember that evergreens come in a variety of colors like blues, yellows golds and greens that when mixed together create an interesting effect. Let Broccolo help you select the right plants to provide texture, color and interest to appreciate the dormant beauty of winter. Jessica DeMasio
