Re: Our series on woody plants — shrubs and small trees — that offer substance in mixed settings where herbaceous perennials and annuals need help in showing their wares. 

There are all kinds of evergreen and deciduous ones that help, but hear, hear, you are asking, where are the flowers? After all, you continue, the whole raison d’etre of my border is flowers, flowers and more flowers. And if not flowers, then maybe berries or other attractions in winter. I will try my best to comply.
