Caring For Flowering Shrubs You Purchased
When flowering shrubs from Perfect Plants arrive on your doorstep they are ready to hit the soil and thrive! But we do recommend being mindful of the following factors to ensure your flowering shrubs reach their full potential.
Flowering Shrub Zones
The United States Department of Agriculture divided the United States into 13 different growing zones. These zones are demarcated with each 10 degree F change across the United States. The coldest location, USDA growing zone 1 is near the uppermost Canadian border and the warmest is (13) is located at the farthest tip of the state of Florida.
Flowering shrubs and other plants that thrive in the cold climate of zone 1 can’t survive in the humid heat of zone 13 in Florida. These growing zones help gardeners know which plant will grow best in which climate.
When To Prune Flowering Shrubs
Depending on when your flowering shrub blooms, there is a specific timeframe that is best to start the pruning process. Spring-blooming shrubs should be pruned after all of the flowers have died. Flowering shrubs that bloom in the summer or fall should be pruned during the winter.
What To Consider When Ordering Flowing Shrubs
Looking for a flowing shrub to fit a specific spot in your garden? We sell flowering shrubs for all situations!
Flowing Shrubs For Full Sun
Some flowering shrubs need to be planted in a location that is in the direct sun for most of the day. If they don’t receive enough sunlight they will become leggy instead of full and bushy. The shrubs won’t produce many blooms either. At least 6-8 hours of sunlight is best.
Flowering Shrubs For Full Shade
If you don’t have a sunny location, don’t worry, many full sized and dwarf flowering shrubs thrive in a shady location. These shrubs can’t tolerate the heat that a full sun location would generate.
What Flowering Shrubs Are Deer Resistant?
Many types of flowering shrubs are deer resistant. For example, planting Sweet Viburnum or Buddleia Nanho Blue Butterfly Bush will prevent deer from wandering by and eating your plants. Putting these flowering shrubs around your garden will prevent wandering animals from snacking on your plants.
What Are The Best Evergreen Flowering Shrubs?
Azaleas are one example of evergreen shrubs that will last for years. Azalea shrubs come with flowers of all shades of red, pink, and white. Azaleas are relatively low maintenance and beautiful all year round, making them a popular choice of evergreen flowering shrub. Not sure which one is right for you? We recommend the George Taber Azalea, it is one of our best sellers.
Large Flowering Shrubs vs. Small Flowering Shrubs
Both large and small flowering shrubs have their place in the landscape. Small flowering shrubs make ideal foundation plants and accent plants. A grouping of small shrubs makes a big statement in the landscape.
Flowering Shrubs For Containers
Any variety of dwarf flowering shrubs is ideal for growing in a container. The shrub will remain small and compact while producing colorful blooms. Check the growing zone of the plant and whether it grows best in full sun or shade.
