Fire & Ice by Robert Frost: Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I've tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice. (Harper's car crash scene)

Paperbark Cherry for winter interest. Wow! Planted mostly for it's stunning bark color, this tree has clusters of tiny white flowers that bloom in the spring. Green leaves turn yellow in the fall. The tree grows 20-30' tall and wide and requires full sun. It is susceptible to disease and pests so it should be planted as a short-lived tree. Zones 5-8
