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.

Nanking Cherry

Prunus tomentosa • Zones 2 to 7

Hardy and fast-growing, the Nanking cherry produces fragrant white flowers in spring. A larger shrub or small ornamental tree, it grows 6 to 10 feet tall and wide. After the spring bloom, you’ll notice small fruits, a favorite of many songbirds. Use Nanking cherry in the landscape for a hedge, border or specimen planting.

    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.
