If you’re looking for a way to enhance your landscape, consider ornamental plants. These decorative trees and shrubs add year-round beauty to your yard without taking up a lot of space. Some popular choices include:
- Boxwoods – These dense shrubs are known for their evergreen foliage. Boxwoods can be pruned into elegant shapes to create dramatic hedges, but they also thrive with minimal trimming for a less formal look.
- Yews – If you like evergreens, yews are another great option. Available in many different varieties, they work equally well in shade or sun, and are drought- and insect-resistant.
- Crape myrtles – With their colorful flowers, crape myrtle trees add a splash of color to any summer garden. Although they are deciduous, their attractive bark can be an attractive focal point of the winter landscape as well.
- Hollies – Speaking of winter, holly bushes are sure to brighten up the gray, cold months. Their vivid red berries and shiny evergreen leaves make them a timeless favorite.
