Question: What Can I Plant That Will Offer Winter Color?
Carol writes, "I'd like to see something about what I can plant now (spring) that can provide color this winter. Paperbark cherry is all I've come up with so far for the northern climes."
Answer:

I discuss several options in this article on winter color for northern climes, including holly plants and red twig dogwood shrubs. Achieving good winter color is the most difficult component of a plan that seeks four seasons of landscape color, but it is certainly possible through the use of evergreen shrubs, trees that have interesting bark or branching patterns, etc.
