With Fall here, we can expect our local landscapes to soon be burst aglow with deep crimsons, ambers, and oranges. Though the trees look ablaze and beautiful at this time of year, it doesn’t last long: soon the leaves will tumble to the ground, leaving barren branches exposed.
In the wintertime, it’s easy for landscapes to look a little lackluster, to be barren and monotonous in color with lots of grays, browns, and blacks dominating the palette. The professional landscapers at Lehnhoff’s know better, though: we can offer solutions to the winter blues by infusing your yard with a little color and life even in the coldest temperatures.
Below are a few of our favorite options for bringing a little vitality to your landscape during the time of year when most plants seem lifeless.
- Shrub Willows: Certain varieties of shrub willows, like the Salix “Flame” develop an orange-red bark that grows tall and spindly – anywhere from 15-20 feet when mature.
- Winter Berry: A deciduous holly that produces hundreds of little scarlet colored berries offers a rush of brightness to your yard.
- Evergreen Hollies: From the name alone, you know they’ll stay green when all other foliage has died back, and the female varieties produce red berries, creating a bold color contrast.
- Paperbark cherry: A deep red like the fruit it’s named after, this variety of cherry has the most stunning bark that shines brightly under a little sunlight, thereby taking center stage even without leaves adorning its branches.
