Good time to plant woody shrubs and trees
After these last cold fronts, I would be safe to claim that the dormant season for most woody landscape plants has arrived. Deciduous trees and shrubs are leafless, making the landscape looking bare except for where the foliage of evergreen plants keep their color. It is a good time to observe the winter characteristics of landscape plants, such as bark textures and colors, growth form, winter fruit and interesting bud formation. There are many trees and shrubs which exhibit outstanding winter beauty and are often chosen for the landscape because of these features.
