Last minute study walk for Woody ID

Caryopteris x clandonensis just beginning to bloom.

Sparce needles of Pinus bungeana. This tree is all about the beautiful and functional camouflage bark.

Glossy leaves and terminal flower buds of the winter-blooming Camellia japonica.

Cryptomeria japonica, which despite its common name is not really a cedar.

Parrotia persica in the Hamamelis family.

Pieris japonica, with next years flowers already budding. Pretty.

Distinguishing fishbone pattern of Cotoneaster horizontalis branching.
