Fothergilla is a spring-blooming shrub with very unusual blossoms (shown here). It grows well in both shade and sun, and is sure to get comments and compliments.
The best way to have a garden that doesn't look like every other one on the block is to incorporate a wide variety of less-common shrubbery. Here's one to consider. Kerria is blooming now with its stunning yellow golden blossoms. And would you believe it -- this is a shade loving shrub!
This mid-sized suburban garden was redesigned to attract birds, using native plants and shrubs, and to provide a play area for grandchildren (foreground). The neighboring lot line house is in the background of the picture shown.
Using native plants is one of the secrets of creating sustainable space because they require less care and watering. We know the shrubs, flowering plants and grasses that are native to this area. We have used them for the last 20 years, and we can help you incorporate them appropriately in your landscape design.
