When some people think of shrubs, they automatically think of something that looks more like an evergreen. In fact there are many different kinds of low-maintenance shrubs, including flowering shrubs as well as foliage and fruit-bearing shrubs.
Shrubs can make a beautiful backdrop for spring flowering bulbs in your landscape. After the bulbs are spent, the shrubs continue to provide interest with bright flowers of their own or rich-colored foliage that can last throughout the season, even into the winter. Shrubs are also a great way to create a natural privacy fence that is beautiful and interesting to both you and the neighbors.
If you have a vertical space that needs to be filled but a shrub might be too much, consider a vine. Vines can be trained to grow up trellises or fences and can provide attractive foliage, showy flowers as well as fall foliage color. The woody varieties will also offer winter interest. In addition, both woody and herbaceous varieties are often a great way to attract butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard.
Flowerland carries several varieties of shrubs and vines. The following photos are a glimpse of what is available.
