Deciduous Ornamental Trees
There are a few deciduous ornamental trees which you can use to decorate your garden. These trees should be put on the correct location to fulfill their ornamental features. Small trees or shrubs should be put beside sidewalks and driveways, and people are able to read the beautiful flowers very directly. Large trees with big tree crown should be put beside the house to provide adequate shade for the house in summer.
One choice for the deciduous option is some flowering shrubs which can be a good source for wild animals. Most of these shrubs are deciduous and they will lose their foliage in winter. The shrubs should be trimmed ever year to facilitate the produce of healthy buds. The shrubs have beautiful flowering containing nectar which can attract butterflies and bees.
