Great Trees for Winter Interest
תודה על תמיכתך! Whether for their handsome bark, evergreen leaves or persistent colorful fruits, these trees are all great choices to add some winter interest to the home landscape.
The paperbark maple is one of those trees that we field a lot of questions about at the Arboretum. Native to the forests of central China, the paperbark maple feels right at home here in Western North Carolina, but unlike some other exotic maple species that have a tendency to escape cultivation, you can rest easy planting it near a forested area, as this species produces very few viable seeds.
What it lacks in ease of propagation, this stunning tree more than makes up for in ornamental value and ease of care. In the fall, its leaves transform into variable hues of orange and red that can be quite brilliant, offering a lovely autumnal prelude to its stunning wintery bark display. But among them is a standout in my mind: the green hawthorn.
But this is by no means a one-season plant! And although you might not immediately notice the similarity in its flowers, the green hawthorn is actually in the rose family — the Rosaceae. Unlike other hawthorns, however, Crataegus viridus is largely spineless. What more could you want from a tree with multiple seasons of interest?
While it may not be quite as showy as its northern cousin, the river birch is more than deserving of its own poetic feature. It is a wonderful choice for gardeners in more southern climes to enjoy that beautiful, flaky birch bark that peels away from the tree in sheets resembling pinkish-cream to gray-brown paper.
Leathery, toothed, diamond-shaped leaves complete the package and provide a spot of yellow in the autumn landscape. The river birch is a workhorse of a tree, and is perhaps the most adaptable of the birches. It often develops as a multi-trunked specimen with a unique habit and can reach rather substantial heights.
Coupled with its handsome bark, these features make the river birch a welcome feature in the winter garden and certainly earn it a place on this list.
As the name would suggest, these large shrubs to midsize trees — depending on the variety grown and how they are maintained — are native to the American East, including our region. That said, there are more than a thousand varieties of American holly out there, including some with orange or yellow berries! Not only are these berries highly ornamental, but they are readily consumed by birds and other wildlife.
Interestingly, though, not all American hollies produce fruits. They are a dioecious species, meaning their male and female flowers are borne on separate plants. You must have the two growing near enough to each other for the females to set fruit — with a little help from pollinator insects like bees, of course! Although the blooms provide another season of wildlife value for these insects in the summer, we should be the ones thanking them for their vital role in providing us with the beautiful fruits that will end up in centerpieces and wreaths as our holiday decorations this time of year.
If you want to see beautiful, mature American hollies — or any of the trees featured in this post — you can find them growing across The North Carolina Arboretum! Get Tickets for a Future Date.

Carolina Belle Peach
Wildlife-friendly native fruit trees make an interesting addition to the home landscape. During the summer, peach stands dot roadsides throughout South Carolina. Although our homegrown peaches are delicious, they actually originated in China. Only recently - within the past two centuries - have they found the well-drained soils of South Carolina welcoming. American Indians in South Carolina depended on indigenous trees for fruit production for thousands of years.
The autumn months in the Blue Ridge Mountains are some of the most extraordinary.
