Trees stay put for a long time... plan before you plant.
Great for climbing, resting in the shade and setting your landscape apart, trees play an important role in our lives at every stage. “Old trees symbolize stability. Young trees represent vibrance and growth,” explains one arborist. And they’re one of our best protections against pollution and severe weather.
Besides bringing a holiday tree into your home, you can add life and color by decorating with other holiday plants. The poinsettia is a proven performer for festooning a corner, hearth or table top with seasonal cheer. With leaves of white, coral, pink, red or burgundy, as well as in variegated tones, poinsettias splash color wherever you put them. Try grouping several at varied heights (using upside-down terra cotta pots
for perches), weaving greenery or garland into bare spots.
