Top 10 Flowering Shrubs

Perennials and annuals aren’t the only plants that provide color in the garden. These flowering shrubs and flowering bushes will add magnificent scents and colors to your yard.


Weigela spp. • Zones 3 to 9

For a pretty shrub with interest from early spring through fall, plant weigela in your borders and flower beds. For a compact shrub with bold pink flowers and burgundy fall foliage, try Fine Wine.

    Many of our favorite flowering shrubs, too. Weigela shrubs are so underused in home landscapes, especially variegated weigela which is quite striking even after the blooms end.
    So glad to see viburnum on your list. Viburnums are such reliable bloomers and they don’t often make top flowering shrub lists.

    I have one of these in my yard that’s been there for many years. My house was built in 1942. It has gotten out of control and I need know how to prune it. Will it grow back if I cut it to the ground after it blooms?
