A plant's density or visual weight creates a great deal of impact in a garden. For example, consider an evergreen tree, as opposed to a deciduous tree. Even in the middle of summer, the evergreen tree tends to have more visual weight than the deciduous one. This means these plants should be considered carefully in developing your garden picture. Used as specimen plants, they will attract a great deal of attention. Used in groupings, they can serve as a dark background for a plant of finer texture.
