Evergreens should be planted a good distance away from the house to give them a chance to display their beauty during the winter.as much as the evergreen is gifted in its own peculiar way it’s also important to present them in the right way. Let them serve as backgrounds against which to bring out the colors that rival to some extent the flowers of the summer.
Alders are also a winter wonder. How bright their scarlet berries radiated. Their intense color is as that of a flame which seems to radiate warmth in the winter cold. The Alders scarlet fire, presented against a green background of Evergreens will make the winter glow with brilliant color. Another garden wonder that has a spectacular winter scene is the RedBranchedWillow especially when positioned against a backdrop of Evergreens they bring about a contrast of color which appears as though chiseled from the coral. The effects are breath taking. Bittersweet ‘with its clusters of red and orange contrasted against the evergreen produces an effect unrivaled by many flowers.
