Evergreens come in other colors, such as yellows and blues, so the name is somewhat misleading. Evergreen means they keep their leaves or needles year round, and the tree is not bare. They are great winter trees as they offer color to your yard.
Use Plants That Have Winter Berries
There are many trees and shrubs that have berries that last through the winter, such as crabapples and holly bushes. These also provide food for birds that do not migrate.
Look at the Bark on Trees
Trees have different colors and types of bark. There are some that look like they are peeling, and there are other textures to trees as well. Trees have color variations of white through brown. There are also bushes that have barks in browns and reds.
