An accent tree can contribute a lot to a garden's design. Trees with attractive flowers and berries can become a focal point during their blooming season. Sometimes trees are selected to accent the garden design just because of their attractive leaves or bark. Although some accent trees are small in size, they can be striking when clumped or grouped together.
