You may not have room for a giant shade tree in your landscape but there are many ornamental trees that can color, texture and focal points throughout your outdoor living areas. Even though it appears to be an evergreen, the larch is actually deciduous, dropping its foliage in the winter. Japanese maple is one of the most versatile trees for any yard, patio or garden. Japanese maples have extraordinary fall colors that range from bright yellow through orange and red, and is often striking, even on trees grown in total shade. These are just two of many ornamental trees available at Wedel's. Consider Rose of Sharon, Redbud, Lilac Tree, Hawthorne and many others.

Dogwood
The graceful Dogwood is a favorite for the landscape. A slow to medium grower, the Dogwood offers year-round interest; the beautiful spring flowers, summer foliage and autumn color. In fall it produces berries, and in winter the bark and horizontal branching are attractive. Reaching a height of 20 to 30 feet, Dogwoods add beauty in masses or as an understory in partial shade.

Siberian Pea Shrub
Another adaptable tree is the Siberian Pea Shrub. It requires full sun, but is not choosy about the soil in which it grows. It is a fast grower, reaching to about 20 feet. Shearing will increase the density of the plant, so it can be used as a hedge or windbreak, or it can be pruned into a small tree. Extremely hardy, Siberian Pea Shrubs have arching branches that sweep toward the ground, and produce flowers in the spring.
