New Landscape Shrubs to Watch for From CAST 2019
Shrubs and bushes build the foundation for structure in the landscape. They can provide privacy, screen unsightly messes, stabilize the soil, and offer seasonal interest year-round. Newer varieties of shrubs are smaller and more compact, so they behave themselves in the landscape and are suitable for small-space growers and growing in larger containers. Variegated foliage also adds variety and interest to some of the newer landscape shrubs. Many of these new shrubs have sturdy stems for durability and strong flowering, and come with disease-resistant packages.
Premiering at California Spring Trials as new introductions for 2019, these 12 varieties [as seen in the photo slideshow above] will be available for retail sales in 2020.
