The Q&A Archives: Which tree or shrub should we use?

Question: What would be a good tree/shrub to put in a large container in front of our building for the holidays that we could keep year around? Thank you so much!

Answer: I would recommend either a Colorado Blue Spruce (you can add seasonal decorations), or a holly. We usually think of Christmas when we think of holly's bright red berries, but these tough, drought-resistant shrubs do well in Texas all year round.
