Keep reading to learn all about ornamental shrubs and how they can match your landscape.
When it comes to yard shrubs, nothing greets spring with more dazzle than azaleas. It’s worth emphasizing that there are many different types of azaleas out there, so it can be a bit overwhelming to decide on one for your yard.
Stewartstonian azaleas end up showing one of the most vibrant reds ever when fall comes around. They grow up to 5 feet in height, so they can offer a unique dynamic to your shrub ensemble.
If you need more plant choices, you could always go with an iconic favorite. While most depictions of roses are red, you actually have more options than that. Some gardeners would argue that landscaping isn’t complete unless you have at least one type of rose.
For those that are worried about keeping the roses alive, you can make things easier by opting for the low-maintenance breed of rose known as Candy Oh. Among other amazing options, there are many roses bushes to choose from at Van Poecke & Zn.
When considering storied shrubs, you should also think about the types of creatures that each one will attract. The butterfly bush is named after the beautiful beings that come flocking to it because of the bloom clusters that smell of honey.
Butterfly bushes can grow about the length of half your arm. If you invest in enough of them, you can turn your average garden into a heavenly haven for all kinds of butterflies.
A winter landscape doesn’t have to be barren of beauty. You can enjoy the winter season just as much as any other when you invest in camellias. These shrubs can outlast any winter and add wonderful pops of color to your landscaping, ranging from red to white.
Plant staggering is often the best strategy to ensure you have blooming shrubs all season long. Staggering involves planting the seeds at strategic times throughout the year.
Now that you’ve learned all about ornamental shrubs, you can choose the ones that fit your landscape the best. Boosting your curb appeal is one of the single most effective ways of having a more valuable home. You’re sure to get compliments on your landscaping all the time.
