Flowering shrubs are an excellent way to add a ton of visual interest to your garden--height, texture, and many colors to choose from. Combining those elements in one specimen allows you to create a delightful outdoor space.
TN Nursery specializes in sending bare-root shrubs to our customers. This delivery method ensures you receive healthy, contamination-free plants and is a more sustainable practice. Just think. You unbox and plant your shrubs, recycle the box, and done--no need to fill your trash with those plain plastic containers or stack them in the corner of your potting shed, never to be used again (despite good intentions).
Why You Should Plant Flowering Shrubs
Besides the most apparent benefit--the sheer beauty, here are three excellent reasons to add these flowers to your landscape plan:
Attract pollinators: Flowers are like an all-you-can-eat buffet for pollinator insects and hummingbirds. An open blossom is an invitation to feast on the nourishing nectar, spreading pollen as they move from one bloom to the next.
Strengthen your soil against erosion: If you see signs the earth is eroding on your property--small fissures or pitted areas--you need to strengthen the soil to interrupt that damage. Planting flowering shrubs or trees is an easy solution. As the roots develop, they will hold down the dirt, keeping it in place during wind or rain.
Decompact the soil: Soil compaction contributes to the erosion problem. As soil settles in and hardens, it becomes unabsorbent of water and nutrients. As the roots of your flowering shrubs make their home underground, they will break up compaction and help prevent further compaction.
These points are each critical to a healthy ecosystem and a thriving garden.
TN Nursery Staff Picks: Three of Our Favorite Flowering Shrubs
TN Nursery offers about three dozen flowering shrubs for your consideration--here are three of our staff favorites.
Hydrangea: Hydrangea is a summertime classic. The large, clustered flowers are impressive, and the foliage is lovely when not blooming. We carry several varieties: Nikko blue, smooth hydrangea arborescence, and snow hill (white).
Weigela: The weigela, which we sell in either pink or red, is a sun-loving flowering shrub that displays colorful blossoms for a long, several-week season.
Lilac: This staff pick has dark green leaves and showy, famously fragrant, purple blossoms. They are popular in a cutting garden.
