Evergreen Shrubs are the Foundation of a Beautiful Garden
A garden for all seasons requires evergreen shrubs. Evergreens stay green consistently through the winter and fall, improving your garden's appearance in the dead of winter. They have a range of hardy zones and various soil types. Evergreen shrubs are perfect for borders and hedges. Some have a mature height and width of 15 feet high and 15 feet wide, and the smaller varieties have a mature height and width of 2-3 feet wide and 2-3 feet high. The size range provides flexibility when planning your garden. Boxwood, Hemlock, Azalea Formosa, Camellia, Juniper, and Arborvitae are some of the evergreen shrubs available.
Most evergreen shrubs grow in acidic, sandy, loamy, moist, and well-drained soil. This wide range of soil types makes choosing the suitable evergreen shrub for your garden area easy. Most varieties will grow in all most any type of soil. An exception is the Formosa Azalea; it prefers acidic, well-drained, moist soil. The Formosa Azalea produces beautiful magenta flowers. The bloom season is spring, and the bloom size is 3-inch flowers.
Another flowering evergreen is Camellia, and it grows in acidic, sandy, loamy, moist, and well-drained soil. Camellia is available in different varieties and can have a spring, summer, or fall bloom season, depending on the plant. The bloom size also depends on the type of Camellia, varying from 3 inches to 6 inches.
