PARTIAL SHADEFULL SUN
Spring blooms plus fall color. This selection of our native Rusty Blackhaw is slightly more compact than the species and has a narrower, more upright habit. Glossy, leathery green leaves that turn burgundy in fall. White flowers in showy rounded cymes, up to 5" across, bloom in spring, and are followed by clusters of blue berries that ripen in September to October and are attractive to birds. Use this large shrub in wildlife gardens, native plantings, and as an understory plant.

Shrubs

Shrubs fill the intermediate niche in the garden. Larger than than perennials, they have a woody structure that gives them a year-round presence. Shrubs offer a variety of beautiful traits to choose from: flowers, fragrance, fall color, fruit, and attractive foliage. There is a shrub to fit every garden, even patio gardens with containers as planting beds can include a dwarf selection or two. Shrubs can be planted on their own to enjoy as a specimen, as wonderful anchors for perennial beds, natural supports for Clematis, or to create a lovely screen when privacy is appreciated. We offer a fine selection of colorful shrub choices to enhance your garden.
