Woody ornamentals or “woodies” are shrubs, vines and trees that are used as elegant accents to lawns and gardens. Many varieties of woodies have colorful or unusually shaped branches like curly willows or red twig dogwood. That is why florist use them to make opulent arrangements. Other varieties boast attractive buds, flowers or berries.
If you are looking for a low maintenance solution to beautify your landscaping, there is no better choice than a woody ornamental. Woodies can be used as an accent, ground coverage, or as a hedge depending on what type you choose. Once they have taken root, these plants thrive with little to no irrigation.
