Consider Color of Trees
In choosing trees that provide seasonal color interest, consider enjoying autumn colors from red maple, Japanese maple, gingko, and scarlet oak. For winter interest: white birch, river birch, and star magnolia. Spring color: pink dogwood, crabapple, Japanese white dogwood, and cherry (Prunus "Okame"). Summer color: golden rain tree, Styrax (Styrax japonicus), star magnolia, lace-bark, and elm. Also, Conus albas or elegantissima or sericea Variegata) have bright red stems in winter and variegated green-edged-in-white leaves in summer. This is an unusual and striking plant.
