Bushes & Shrubs
Sun: Partial Shade
Depending on the time of the year and seasonal availability, we offer over 300 bushes and shrubs. The terms bush and shrub have similar meanings and we use them interchangeably on this site to describe a low woody perennial plant that usually has several stems. Bushes (or shrubs) are often the anchors of a landscape. Bushes come in a multitude of sizes, colors, shapes and many have flowering attributes. The contrasting leaf colors can be positively riveting for the eye. A good example of such shrubs would be row of Diabalo Ninebarks fronted by a row of Little Henry Sweetspire. The lighter bright green leaves of the sweetspire contrast so distinctly with the Diabalo Ninebark. Because there are so many uses and so many distinctive combinations for shrubs and bushes, it is up to you to decide what species please your eye.
Shrubs can provide four-season beauty to a landscape. Some bushes have beautiful fall colors; some provide brightly colored stems and branches for contrast against the winter snow. Other shrubs provide early spring flowers that seem to flow like a fountain and many provide summer privacy and attractive foliage. Evergreen shrubs can provide an inviting look to an entry way or driveway. Most bushes are easy to care for and will remain attractive for long periods of time with minimal effort.
