The 5 Best Bushes for Gardens

A beautiful garden makes everything about a landscape design better. Have you ever thought about which bushes should you add to your garden? While you may have some favorite flowers on your must-have list, this is a list of bushes that we believe are best for gardens.

 

  1. premier blueberry sweet fruit edible bush plant

    Blueberry Bush

 

The blueberry bush may not be the first bush you think of, but it truly should be. A plant for all seasons, the blueberry bush offers up gorgeous bell-shaped white flowers in spring; plump, sweet delectable blueberries in summer; and gorgeous crimson foliage for the fall and winter. Beyond its beauty, blueberry bushes are also great choices for your home garden because conventionally grown blueberries are often full of pesticides. Best of all, blueberry bushes are easy to grow. We offer an assortment of three blueberry plants for best cross pollination (at a discounted rate!), as well as specialized blueberry bush planting mix. You can see all the different types of blueberry bushes that we offer here.

Hydrangeas are easy shrubs to maintain and they reward the gardener with huge, eye catching flowerheads that can last for weeks. Not only that, after they bloom, the flowerheads are beautiful and long lasting in dried arrangements. Perfect Plants offers three different kinds of hydrangeas for different uses in the home landscape. (Check out our Hydrangea Grow Guide)

    Rose Bush

The rose bush is such a classic beauty, and there’s nothing better than a fresh vase of roses from your very own rose bush as your table’s centerpiece. We know that it can be a bit complex if you’ve never grown a rose bush before, so we wrote an entire blog for beginners  who want rose bushes in their gardens; it shares the key elements required for planting rose bushes (site, soil, etc.). You can also review the many different types of rose bushes in our inventory here (as well as our exclusive rose planting mix!).

 

 

 

  1. red ruffles azalea

    Red Ruffles Azalea

    Azaleas

Although there are thousands of varieties of azaleas, there is one thing that they all have in common: stunningly beautiful, bright flowers that are easy to cultivate. One thing to consider: azaleas need to be in acidic soil in order to thrive (soil in which the pH is less than 7.0). As such, we offer a specialized acidic planting mix. Everything you need to know about growing azaleas can be found in our Azalea Grow Guide.

 

 

  1. Bridal Wreath Spirea showy white flowers

Bonus: if you love having butterflies and bees buzzing around your beautiful garden, our Bridal Wreath Spirea is the perfect choice due to its gorgeous cascade of sweet, nectar-filled flowers.
