Our shrub selections are based on seasonal attributes in the landscape and are available in a range of mature sizes, foliage coloration, and bloom times so they work well as hedges and screens, as a backdrop for a garden, and as stand alone plantings in the landscape. Shrubs provide privacy and a sense of enclosure as we avoid views and noises from intrusive surroundings by creating spaces to relax and enjoy being outdoors. While many of the plants we offer are natives, we also include shrubs and perennials that are adapted to our climate and soils. Since we're all looking for plants that are easy to grow so we can spend more time enjoying them and less time maintaining them, we encourage gardeners to consider providing a diverse plant community of large shrubs, perennials, and all-season annuals that provide a range of food and shelter for beneficial insects and birds to keep pests in check.
Our Shrubs and Perennials Availability List Pages including pictures, plant description, and cultural information will be posted in February.
