One of the most attractive additions to the yard is the flowering shrubs. They come in many variations to help inject a splash of color in an otherwise sea of green foliage. There are numerous types of flowering shrubs and you may want to choose some based on season. For instance, a standout winter blooming shrub is the camellia. These produce beautiful rose-like blooms in mid to late winter. They’re available in numerous colors, with the most common being white, pink and burgundy. The rest of the year, the camellia plant has dark shiny green foliage that is indisputably attractive in most gardens. In spring time people look to many varieties of flowering shrubs. These can include lilac, with beautiful heads of tiny purple flowers. Lilac is also attractive to many because of its scent, a deep perfume that speaks of early spring. Another advantage of this bush is size; older lilacs can easily be over ten feet (3.048 m) tall and wide.
The vibrant colors of flowering shrubs capture the eye and draw you into the landscape. Red blooms cascading on a trellis or a walkway lined with dainty purple flowers create a welcoming atmosphere to your home. Whether you create a central focal point with a flourishing shrub or a blush of color under a window, flowering shrubs add to the curb appeal of your home.
