My Favorite Small Trees with Great Bark For Winter Interest
Trees with attractive bark add so much to the winter garden. If a tree can pull its weight in the dead of winter, it has a lot going for it and that alone
can be plenty of reason to plant it. But the plants I'm showcasing below are more than a one-season-winter-wonder. In addition to a strong showing
in other seasons by providing bloom, fall color, or drought tolerance (see individual notes below), I've selected these for their suitability for smaller
gardens by virtue of their dwarf stature or relatively slow growth.
Arctostaphylos 'Austin Griffith'(Zone 7 to 9) is a tough and adaptable selection of the Pacific Northwest native manzanita that's prized for its smooth, sinewy, chocolate-colored
bark, early spring flowers, and hearty constitution. An outstanding evergreen shrub or small tree, it requires full sun
and asks for little to no supplemental water once established.
The gallery below has even more photos of the trees above. But I've assembled some other photos from my vast archives that showcase other beauties that
I've admired. I've identified and commented on most of them, but I don't have full details to offer on them all. But hey, they're still good-looking
