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.

Daphne

Daphne spp. • Zones 4 to 10

Here’s a flowering shrub that almost smells better than it looks—almost. Daphne is loved for the intoxicating scent of its delicate white, pink and purple blooms. Its compact habit and myriad varieties make it versatile, so try it as a ground cover, specimen or foundation 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.
