What Are the Benefits of Buying Flowering Shrubs?
Visual Interest Improves Curb Appeal & Resale Value
Flowering shrubs add dimension and life to any yard, as well as curb appeal when it’s included in the landscape of the front yard. Homes with well manicured and landscaped yards tend to have a higher resale value than homes that do not. 71% of home buyers consider the landscaping when purchasing a new home. It’s an easy and relatively inexpensive investment that adds color, life, and value to your home.
Support the Ecosystem
In addition to their aesthetic appeal, flowering shrubs have an even greater, but lesser known benefit. They are an essential part of a natural, healthy environment. Flowering shrubs not only improve your garden’s health, but they also play a larger role in sustaining the wildlife that surrounds. Flower blossoms and the nectar they produce attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and birds that in turn play a critical role in pollinating other plants ensuring a healthy biotic lifecycle and sustaining the ecosystem.
Removes Pollutants From the Air
We can’t stress this enough, certain plants also add health benefits by cleaning up the air surrounding them! Buy shrubs and hedges and plant them along the road or near the driveway. This will work to remove the general pollutants in the air, and pollutants from passing cars (as well as your own).
Buy the Right Flowering Shrubs Online
We get it, online shopping can be tricky, especially when it’s for something like plants. Our nursery experts are here to help guide you through this process and remove the hassle! First, find out what your grow zone is. You’ll see a list of preferred flowering shrubs for the region you live in.
There are literally hundreds of varieties of flowering shrubs available, each with its own growing characteristics and care requirements. Identifying your grow zone will help eliminate any unsuitable options from your list and refine the options! There are some other things to consider when shopping for flowering shrubs online:
- Deciduous versus Evergreen: It’s important to think about what you want out of your flowering shrub before making a purchase. Are you looking for a deciduous shrub that will shed its leaves each year or do you want an evergreen that will retain a richness of color in your yard over the winter months?
- Space to work with: How much space do you have to work with in your yard? Think ahead and map this out. Are you looking for something small and dwarf for a confined space or a spreading shrub that will help to screen or buffer an eyesore area in your yard? The size of your yard isn’t a limitation when it comes to flowering shrubs, we have options for both cozy and spacious settings!
- Pick your favorite color: Choosing the right flowering shrubs often comes down to aesthetic preference as well. Your own personal taste in flower color or leaf hue, as well as the overall color scheme of your home and garden influence which bloom colors you can feasibly choose.

How to Take Care of Your Flowering Shrubs
Plant at the Right Time
Caring for your flowering shrub starts the moment you plant it. The majority of flowering shrubs should be planted in the spring or fall, though in a few cases you’d be perfectly fine in summer. Before planting any shrubs in your yard, understand the plants' size at maturity and space accordingly to ensure that you’re giving the shrubs enough room to grow.
Plant in the Right Space
You also need to make sure that their placement will allow them enough sunlight to thrive. Dig the plant hole or pit as deep as the root ball and twice as wide. In other words, if you have say a 3 gallon plant that’s 12” deep and 12” wide, dig the whole 12” deep and 24” wide (width radius).
Add Healthy Soil
All flowering shrubs require healthy soil. Be sure that you amend soils as required to allow for proper drainage and oxygen. Also add organic material or fertilizer for added nutrients that will help the flowering shrub thrive and supplement the plant's varying needs. A well-balanced soil base is essential for root development and long term plant health. Good soils retain minerals and nutrients along with soil moisture which is the vehicle for uptake.
A healthy underlying soil base reduces overall subsequent watering, fertilizer and ongoing maintenance time that would otherwise be required for plants in unhealthy soil. Healthy roots mean a healthy plant.
