Azalea

A classic early spring bloomer! When one thinks of azaleas, a bushy shrub with small leaves and trumpet like flower clusters most likely come to mind. However azaleas can be deciduous as well. The primary difference between evergreen and deciduous azaleas is that deciduous azaleas lose their leaves in the fall, while evergreen azaleas retain all or most of their foliage year round. The show of blooms on the bare branches of deciduous azaleas is quite something!

This plant is generally low-maintenance, only requiring dead-heading and annual pruning in later winter to encourage flowers and a compact shape. Assorted varieties bring variations in sizing and bloom color.

Hydrangeas can grow as climbing vines and trees, but are most commonly grown as a shrub. The beautiful flowers produced by this plant is what makes these so popular. Most put on a showy display from early spring all the way into fall. The large flowers come in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. Hydrangea blooms can be pink, blue, red, white, purple and green! Some even change based on soil compositions: Pink = basic to neutral soil and Blue = acidic soil. Most of these flowering shrubs can grow in partial shade but some can handle full sun. Our best selection of hydrangea arrive after the threat of frost has ended (May) and last through the autumn.

They are super hardy, deer don't go near them, their small thorns make them an excellent barrier or hedge, they do just fine in sun or partial shade, and they come in all kinds of colors that add plenty of interest to the landscape. They do lose their leaves during the winter, so we recommend to plant them with evergreen shrubs.

Evergreen Shrubs

Boxwoods are dense, evergreen shrubs often used as accents, hedges, topiaries, or in containers. Growing boxwood in your home landscape allows you to create a formal hedge, a matching border, cover foundations or even pair them to balance an entryway.

These classic shrubs are also popular due to their deer resistance.

Their use is as versatile as boxwood as they too are commonly used for hedges, foundation plantings, in pairs as well as focal pieces.
