Shrubs

Too many people call this group of garden plants 'bushes.' That just doesn't give them enough credit when you consider all of the things that they can do.  An oak leaf hydrangea provides exfoliating bark in the winter, giant flowers in the summer, and beautiful maroon, red, and purple foliage in the fall. A hardy orange gives fragrance throughout the garden in the spring, a conversation piece with the fruit in late summer, and if planted in the correct spot in the garden it will keep you son or daughter's significant other at bay!  They can be planted into a hedge to separate areas of the garden, incorporated into the perennial border to add height and structure, or if large enough just planted right out in the yard on their own.  Some of our shrubs for 2022 will be included in the Trees, Shrubs, Annuals, and Beyond online plant release that will happen on Wednesday, April 6th.
