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.

Rhododendron

Rhododendron spp. • Zones 4 to 9

Its showy blooms—available in a wide spectrum of colors—and its preference for partial shade have made this flowering shrub one of the most popular in the country. A natural fit in many settings, the rhododendron looks great in woodland gardens or as a single bush in smaller urban landscapes.
