Woody ornamentals are long-lived perennials with stems and branches that increase in girth and height each growing season. Unlike herbaceous plants that die back to the ground in winter, woody ornamentals remain above ground year-round.

Some examples of woody ornamentals are oak, maple, dogwood and birch trees, rose bushes, shrubs, rhododendron, hibiscus, wisteria, and vines.
