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.

Rose of Sharon

Hibiscus syriacus • Zones 5 to 9

It may be a late bloomer but, as many gardeners know, rose of Sharon is well worth the wait. A member of the hibiscus family, this deciduous shrub bears beautiful trumpet-shaped flowers that bloom from late summer through mid-autumn. Rose of Sharon plants reach 10 feet high and thrive in moist, well-draining soil.

    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.
