Holiday Planter Tips & Tricks

It’s hard to believe the holiday season is already upon us! Here at Winterberry, holiday decorating is in full swing!

Colors of Fall

With summer winding down and fall just around the corner, it is time to start thinking about adding fall colors into your landscape. Fall annuals are really what fall is about, but there are other ways to get long-lasting fall interest in your yard using trees, shrubs and perennials.

Here at Winterberry we have a variety of ways to add color. Trees are a great way to add a big splash of fall color to your landscape. A few of my favorites include Maples, Sweetgum and River Birch. The foliage of Maples range from yellow to orange and even red, depending on the type of Maple tree you select. Sweetgums have yellow-purple-red foliage, also depending on the variety. River Birches offer a yellow foliage with an interesting bark in the fall.
In the shrub yard, we selected a new Weigela called Wings of Fire which grows to four feet tall and wide. This shrub is great for borders and the foliage gets a distinct red color once cool autumn temperatures arrive. Brandywine and Winterthur, just two of the many types Viburnum we carry, produce red and blue berries and are paired with a dark maroon-red foliage. These Viburnum are stunning alone or even planted as a border. A favorite fall shrub or tree of mine would be Hydrangea paniculata varieties; Limelight and Little Lime are a great choice for fall color. Lime green blooms age into varying shades of pink and persist throughout the season and even into the frost.
