Spilled Wine® Weigela Wine & Roses® weigela has been a garden classic since we introduced it over 10 years ago. Have you tried its little sister, Spilled Wine®? Both have that luscious dark purple foliage that contrasts so beautifully with the pink flowers and are easy to grow, deer resistant shrubs that bloom in late spring. But Spilled Wine® is just 2-3 feet tall, making it ideally suited to perennial beds, the edge of foundation plantings, or any landscape need.


Japanese Barberry (Berberis thunbergii Helmond Pillar) I'm going to put a couple of these in to replace some old tall shrubs.


*Boxwood 'Dee Runk' is reportedly the nicest of the columnar boxwoods tolerating shade and clay soils. Total height of 8-10 ft tall can be sheared shorter. Max width about two feet. Advantage over other upright boxwoods is dense growth that won't flop open. Will fit nicely next to the porch stairs and in the corner by the garage.


Best Flowering Shrubs for Hedges

Snowball viburnum - flowering hedge, requires full sun/partial shade, stands 3-15 ft tall and 3-12 feet wide. Perfect for backyard privacy! :)


Metal containers with Agave 'Blue Glow' and trailing Senecio radicans. Would work in the landscape where the tall shrub died in the backyard in AZ.


Best Plants for Hedges

Flowering Quince- may be used as a privacy hedge Flowering quince is equipped with sharp spines that make it an effective barrier plant or privacy screen. The 6- to 10-foot-tall shrub lights up the early spring landscape with its scarlet, pink, or white blooms. Some varieties might rebloom in fall. The selection pictured here is 'Toyo Nishiki'. Name: Chaenomeles selections Zones: 4 - 8


Is That a Tall Shrub or a Small Tree?

Tall Shrubs: Picture: the tall shrub, PeeGee hydrangea is very tree-like in shape.

A stunning evergreen shrub to place at the back of your garden bed is the Castle Wall™ Blue Holly. Growing to an impressive 5 to 8-feet tall, but only 3 to 4-wide this holly is perfect for mid-sized gardens as it’s narrow, pyramidal shape won’t overwhelm the garden bed.
