Whether novice or experienced gardeners, we all strive for gardens that look good no matter the season. And that is a challenge indeed. What can we do to maintain some structure and color when the temperatures hover in the single digits and all signs of plant life are but a pleasant memory? The answer is incorporating dwarf evergreens and deciduous shrubs for year round interest. Shrubs form the framework of the garden and if selected carefully, can provide interest via interesting bark or persistent fruits. Shrubs, especially small ones, are easy to care for and therefore often time‐saving in the long run.
