Plant Picks for December:
"Paper Bark" Maple & "Arum Italicum"
While it is true that there is always something in bloom in the northwest these winter months give us an opportunity to more away from flowers and gain an appreciation for other floral features such as bark and foliage.
Acer griseum "Paper Bark" Maple - The Paper Bark Maple is a perfect choice for winter interest with its dark mahogany peeling bark and pleasant branching pattern. This is a small tree well suited for our northwest gardens and while there are no flowers to write home about the fall color and subsequent interesting barks makes it well worth the space it will take up in your garden.
"Arum Italicum" - I find this perennial to be very interesting for winter interest (this plant actually goes dormant in the summer and completely disappears). Its mottled leaves are a bright spot in the shade border all throughout the winter and early spring months. In early summer it sports a seed head that looks like an ear of corn with bright red seeds. Since Arum Italicum can be a little overly friendly, I always remove the seeds before they ripen so they donít spread all over the place. Some gardeners consider this perennial to be a weed but I have never had any issues controlling it in my garden.
