Plants of the Week

Ornamental plant material

Ornamentals are plants whose primary purpose are to add beauty, texture and unique characteristics to your landscape. These are woody plants, and typically are planted as specimens (one at a time as opposed to groupings). Usually larger than most of your woodies, they provide multi-seasonal interest for your landscape.
