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.

Camellia

Camellia spp. • Zones 6 to 11

When most garden plants are settling in for a well-earned rest, camellia is just warming up. In fall, this evergreen shows off pink, white, yellow, orange and red blooms that last into winter and even early spring. With varieties ranging from 3 to 20 feet high, camellia does best in a partly shady spot that’s protected from hot, dry air and cold, strong winds.

    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?
