Choosing Trees & Shrubs for Your Indiana Landscape

Gardeners and nature enthusiasts in Indiana deserve the best plants for the state’s Midwestern climate. At Nature Hills Nursery, we are committed to assisting all residents in The Crossroads of America grow an amazing landscape. Our horticulturalists have carefully selected Indiana plants and perennials that are likely to flourish in your backyard, garden or fields.


Indiana has one of the most stable growing environments in the U.S., with most of the state’s northern half in USDA Zone 5B and most of the southern half in Zone 6. This means a wide variety of trees and shrubs can be planted even after accounting for local differences in soil, sun levels and pests. Select a category below such as Indiana Evergreen Trees or Blue Flowering Shrubs to search for specific flora. We have also compiled the bestsellers in several categories. If you’re having trouble deciding on a plant, seeing that other Indiana residents love the Autumn Blaze Maple or Common Purple Lilac may spur your imagination. You’ll find other planting inspiration and advice in the Garden Blog.
