January provides a satisfying display here at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. We see beautyberry, winterberry and the red berries of the strawberry tree. Bark from trees such as the paperbark maple or the Japanese Stewartia prove that trees are interesting with or without their show of foliage.
Callicarpa acuminata ‘Woodlanders’ – one of our beautyberries
Ilex verticillata ‘Winter Gold’ or winterberry
Arbutus unedo ‘Elfin King’, sometimes called strawberry tree
Acer griseum or paperbark maple
Stewartia pseudocamellia or Japanese Stewartia
