Let's talk about shrubs. Coming in a myriad of sizes, shapes, foliage and flower color, we grow almost 250 varieties of outstanding shrubs. So whether you garden for fragrance, hummingbirds, wildlife, cut flowers – or just need a big honkin' semi-permanent focal point to screen out an ugly wall or fence – we've got you covered!

Holding it down mid-to-back of bed, shrubs give your garden what it needs to take it to the next level: height, structure and backbone. The best ones are effortless and easy-going, not demanding too much of your attention and making your garden easier to care for because you don't have to fill in every spot. Sure, they take a little more time and patience to grow, but once they've become established, they're long-lived, carefree and make your garden look oh-so-put-together!
