Small shrubs are an attractive landscaping solution for borders around a property line, porch or drive way. They can also be used as a natural border around a garden bed or as a backdrop to annual and perennial flowers or ground covers. The plants that fall into this category either mature to be no more than 3 feet tall or are intended to be pruned to maintain that height.
‘Dwarf’ shrubs are varieties that either grow slowly or have a short stature when mature. If you are looking for low maintenance shrubbery, ‘dwarf’ shrubs are the best choice.
We have a large variety of small shrubs in our Garden Center ranging from lush flowering shrubs, like Dwarf Azaleas and Drift Roses, to hardy green bushes, like Junipers and Japanese Boxwood.
