Winter Interest- Exfoliating Bark


Winter Interest?
Look over your garden for the next few months and determine if your garden has winter interest. If not, add to your landscape these exciting additions.  Exfoliating Bark is the perfect characteristic for winter interest to look for when choosing plants.  Trees and large shrubs with exfoliating bark add visual interest all year long, but during winter, when branches are bare, is when exfoliating bark captures our attention. Peeling and curling bark, which often reveals a different color below, adds a sophisticated touch to any garden.
