Shrubs and Bushes FAQ

When should I plant new bushes and shrubs?

For the best long-term results, choose hardy shrub plants that are rated for your USDA Growing Zone. Order when you see what you want in stock. We sell out quickly.

What is the difference between a shrub and a bush?

A bush refers to a low-growing, rounded woody shrub that has branching that starts low to the ground. Some larger shrub plants can be grown as a natural bushy plant or as a single trunk tree. Simply prune the lowest horizontal branches back to the main stem to create the latter.
