(Continued)

SHRUBS/SMALL TREES

Highbush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) is easy to grow, and if you provide multiple plants for pollination, will bear fruit readily (although you will have to fight the birds and other critters for them). These compact shrubs feature a pleasant reddish-purple fall foliage that makes a lovely spot of color amid a naturalized landscape.

TREES

Tricolor beech (Fagus sylvatica ‘Tricolor’) is a stunning, pricy and delicate plant that will reward the patient and careful gardener with an unparalleled show of color. In summer, the leaves are green, white and pink, turning purple and rose in the fall.
