Dwarf Shrubs! More Beauty, Less Effort!

Versatile, well-mannered and low maintenance are good words to describe the latest generation of dwarf shrubs. These varieties offer multiple seasons of interest, extended bloom times and they are well suited for mass plantings. These shrubs promise more beauty with less effort on your part.

Dwarf shrubs have many uses in the landscape. Small hedges and borders, whether in straight, circular, curved, or staggered rows are common. Dwarf shrubs are excellent for mass plantings in large beds. A single plant can often be used as an accent piece in a small bed.

For the purpose of this list, only shrubs with a maintained height of 4 foot or less are included. Most of the listed plants are evergreen, however deciduous plants, which lose their leaves in winter, provide flower color or texture (grasses).
