Winter is the time of year to appreciate the stark beauty of the garden. Although plants lie dormant, interesting characteristics such as the growth habit, ornamental fruit, and bark quality become most evident. Conifers and broadleaved evergreens provide foliage texture and colors that illuminate the landscape. Vincent Simeone–author, horticulturist, and director of the Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park in New York–will discuss enhancing the winter landscape by designing with exceptional trees, shrubs, and native grasses. Among these are winter-fruiting plants, select broadleaved evergreens and conifers, deciduous trees offering striking bark textures and colors, and flowering shrubs that bloom on the fringes of the winter season. Learn sound garden maintenance practices, and discover a plant palette that provides food and shelter for birds in winter.
