Berries and Bark

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
