  • How to Design a Mixed Shrub Border

    Mixed shrub border

    Want to know a secret to getting a lush and beautiful garden like the one pictured above (which is, by the way, a private garden somewhere in Seattle)?

    Mix it up.

    It's that simple! Mix trees, shrubs, annuals, and perennials together and you'll get a multi-colored, multi-textured garden that delights the senses at every turn.

    This type of garden is sometimes called a "mixed border." It has a "cottage garden" type of look, and it is always lush after allowed to grow for a few years.

    But surely designing this type of garden is much more complicated than it looks?

    Actually, it isn't!

    Color, Form, Texture

    To design your own mixed border garden, you'll need to learn how to work with color, form, and texture.

    Color: The color of the leaves and the flowers on a shrub impact its place in the design. 

    Form: What is the shape of the shrub (or annual plant or perennial plant)? Is it round? (Most boxwood shrubs are round.) Or is it pillar-shaped? (The Sunjoy™ Gold Pillar barberry has an upright/columnar form.)

    Texture: Texture in the garden is just like texture everywhere else, but generally it is the leaves of the plant that display the texture. Plants with small leaves are considered fine textured. (Boxwood or Hebe are examples of this.) Plants with larger leaves are coarse textured. (Viburnums are generally coarse textured.)

    DIY Design

    Now that you know a bit about what you're working with, you're ready to start designing.

    First decide upon a color scheme. Will it be all warm colors (red, yellow, orange, pink) or cool colors (purple, blue, lavender), or a combination of both? After deciding upon colors, look at leaf textures. Choose some plants with large leaves and others with small, fern-like leaves. Last, tackle form. Pick out some plants with stiff, upright growth habits and others with softer, draping growth habits.

    shrubs and perennials

    One way to make designing a border easy is to pick a group of three or five types of plants and repeat the groupings for the length of the garden. 

    Another is to simply focus on repeating colors, forms, and textures throughout the garden, without worrying whether you're using the same plants.

    In the picture, left, the silvery color is repeated in the brunnera (foreground) and the dogwood shrub (left, back). The shape of the hosta leaves and brunnera are both coarse, while the dogwood leaf texture is finer, matching that of the phlox plants pictured, back right.

    Working Annuals into the Equation

    Annuals are no different than shrubs and perennials, in terms of a mixed border. One advantage is that they provide a relatively constant show of color throughout the summer, while shrubs and perennials can change throughout the season--moving in and out of bloom, changing leaf colors, etc.

    Choose annuals to mix in that repeat the leaf colors of the shrubs or flowers of the perennials. In the picture above the coleus has burgundy accents that complement the loropetalum shrubs and pinkish hues that mimic the blooms of hyssop blooming in the background.

    The key to gorgeous garden design, though, is to have fun and don't be afraid! Just "grow" for it!

  • Spring Shrub Care

    It's heating up! In northern areas of the country, there's something bordering on spring finally happening. In more southerly climes, it's just about summer--in temperature anyway. Now is the time to perform some basic shrub care to keep plants healthy and growing.

    Here are some tips for proper shrub care.

    How To-H-2218Hand-Pruning vs. Shearing/ Hedging

    There are a few ways to prune a shrub. We're going to focus mainly on shape in this post. (Renewal pruning one type of pruning that you would do to rejuvenate an older shrub, but that's not necessarily a "seasonal maintenance" type of pruning.)

    Spring is a good time to hedge shrubs. You use hedge trimmers (pictured, left) to shear or hedge. With this tool you can clip large numbers of thin branches at the same time. You'd trim an evergreen boxwood hedge with this type of tool. Hedging and shearing works best for evergreens with smaller leaves. It is not an ideal type of pruning for deciduous plants because they end up looking boxy and bare. Evergreens with large leaves can look ratty if sheared because the shears can chop the leaves in half.

    When hedging shrubs (whether with a power hedge trimmer or hand shears), point the shears down and away from you. Never hold them above your head! Hold the shears at a slight angle so that, after trimming, the bottom of the shrub is slightly wider than the top (a pyramid shape). That will ensure that light reaches all parts of the shrub and will prevent dieback from the bottom up. How To-H-2193

    Deciduous shrubs respond better to hand-pruning with loppers (pruners with long handles) or hand pruners (pictured, right). Use hand pruners to keep azaleas looking tidy. Grab a branch that is growing out of bounds and cut it back to the center of the shrub. That will allow the other branches to cover up the pruning cut. You can cut back to almost the center of the shrub or cut back slightly inside the outer leaves--just so you don't leave a shaggy end sticking out.

     

    Here's another picture of hand-pruning for shape:

    How To-D-9836

    Prune any spring-blooming shrubs after they bloom. Azaleas, flowering quince, forsythia, and other early bloomers flower on old growth, which means they will set flower buds for next year this fall. If you want to control the size of these plants the time to prune is now.

    Watering

    How To-B-0851

    It's starting to get warmer which means you need to pay more attention to watering.

    When you first plant a shrub you'll have to water a little bit every day. That's because the smaller root hairs are regrowing and re-establishing themselves. After a couple of weeks you will be able to cut back to watering deeply a few times a week. Always direct the water at the base of the plant, not on the leaves. Wet leaves are an excellent breeding ground for fungal and bacterial diseases.

    Mulching

    How To-E-9986

    Put a fresh layer of mulch down around your shrubs this spring to keep their roots cool and protect them from string trimmers and mowers.

    Never make a mulch volcano! Pull the mulch away from the stems of the shrub. A three inch layer of mulch is enough to keep the roots cool and moist.

    Deadheading

    Pruning-roses

    Most shrubs don't require deadheading but if you remove the spent flowers from rose bushes, butterfly bushes, hydrangeas or other reblooming shrubs, you'll get more flowers and the shrubs will stay tidier.

    When deadheading roses always cut back to just above a leaf with five leaflets, ideally a leaf with a bud that is on the side of the shrub facing out.

    Fertilizing

    Spring is also the time to fertilize spring-flowering shrubs such as azaleas and rhododendrons. Those are acid-loving plants that will respond well to fertilizing with Holly Tone or another formulas specifically for plants that grow well with a lower soil pH.

    If you have hydrangeas that you want to bloom blue or pink, this is a good time to add lime (for pink blooms) or aluminum sulfate (for blue flowers). (It can take awhile for the pH to adjust.)

  • Wildlife Gardening with Shrubs

    IMG_0647

    You might think that you garden just so that you can enjoy the pretty flowers. Or so that you have nice landscaping around your house. You might plant shrubs for privacy screening or as a focal point next to your front door. When you plant shrubs, though, you're also giving a leg up to wildlife--something that's sorely needed in this day and age of rampant development.

    Whether you specifically intend to create a wildlife garden, or welcoming wildlife is a secondary benefit to your landscaping, when you plant shrubs you do the following:

    • Provide a place for birds to nest
    • Provide food for birds, butterflies, and caterpillars
    • Provide cover for birds and other animals
    • Create corridors through which wildlife can safely pass in urban areas

    Birds with food, water, and shelter will fledge (raise) more chicks to maturity. And it's as easy as selecting the right plants!

    Gardening for Birds and Butterflies

    Water

    Before we get to the plants, let's think about water. The National Wildlife Foundation recommends these types of water supplies for habitat gardens:

    • Birdbath
    • Lake
    • Stream
    • Seasonal Poolilex_berry_poppins
    • Ocean
    • Water Garden/Pond
    • River
    • Butterfly Puddling Area
    • Rain Garden
    • Spring

    Food
    Planting shrubs increases the amount of food available to birds in a variety of ways. Some birds eat berries, and will benefit from holly plants and viburnums in the landscape.

    Butterflies and hummingbirds sip nectar from flowers. If you want to lure these winged wonders into the garden you need to plant nectar plants such as butterfly bushes and abelia.

    Shelter

    Another important part of wildlife gardening is shelter. Birds need places to build nests. Small mammals need cover. One of our favorite shrubs for shelter is the Beautybush. This lovely native shrub does double-duty with gorgeous purple berries that feed the birds in the fall.

    Don't forget the evergreen shrubs, too! They work hard for you and for your feathered and furry friends in the winter, providing good cover when deciduous shrubs are bare.

    Screen Shot 2014-04-24 at 10.11.28 AMGo Away Deer!

    There's one type of wildlife that pretty much nobody wants in their garden because they'll eat your plants to the ground: deer. And while there aren't any plants that are 100% deer-proof (a hungry deer will eat anything), there are lots of deer-resistant shrubs. These are shrubs that either don't taste good or don't feel good (thorny) for deer to eat.

  • Container Gardening with Compact Shrubs

    IMG_8948

    Shrubs might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to container gardening. Once you start using them, though, you'll find that they offer just as much color and interest as annuals or perennials while cutting down on the work required to maintain your containers.

    Benefits of Container Gardening with Shrubs

    • Four-season interest
    • Less "changing out" required
    • Perfect place to "nurse" along smaller shrubs before planting in the garden
    • Unique texture
    • Lower maintenance

    Four Season Interest with Shrubs

    There are two different ways you can use shrubs for four-season interest.

    IMG_6587

    1) As the thriller or anchor in a single container planting. You can see in the picture to the right there's a gold and green variegated shrub in the container on the left side. Around the shrub million bells are planted. In the winter those annual flowers can be removed and replaced with pansies for cool weather, which can be switched out again for summer flowering annuals. Instead of needing to replant the entire container, you can just replant the flowering annuals. (The container in the foreground has an ornamental grass performing the same "thriller" function that the variegated shrub does in the back container.)

    "Steal the look" with Wedding Ring Boxwood.

    IMG_0306

    2) As color or texture in a multi-container grouping. I like to use the container filled with liriope (pictured, left. Again, not a shrub) as an example of how a plant with interesting form or texture can fill a container all by itself--without needing to be combined with additional plant types.

    IMG_7887

    Group a few containers filled with one type of plant together (or, when you're using a shrub, you're usually filling the container with just one plant) and you have a true little garden of containers.

    This grouping (pictured, right) was on display at the United States Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C. It includes two containers planted with shrubs or small trees and one container that incorporates a trailing juniper spilling over the edges of the container while colorful coleus plants provide vertical interest.

    Nursing Smaller Shrubs

    IMG_6915

    When you order from Shrub Source you can choose two different sizes of shrubs--a landscape-ready (Gallon) sized shrub or 1 qt size.

    Learn more about our shrub sizes here. 

    While you can plant the quart sizes directly into the landscape, a quart sized compact-growing shrub is also a great choice for container gardening. You can plant the shrub in the container and let it grow for a year or two, providing interesting height and color in your container plantings, and then you can move it out into the landscape once it's bigger. You get double for your money--a container plant for a few years and a larger, fuller shrub that plugs right into the landscape once you pop it out of the container and into the garden.

    The elderberry pictured will be right at home in the container for a few years, but can be planted as a specimen shrub next to the front porch or in a landscape bed once it outgrows the container.

     

    Creating a Unique Sense of Style with Container Shrubs

    DSCN2126

    This picture shows shrub plantings at the Dallas Arboretum. You might be saying to yourself "Well, of course they can have lovely trimmed boxwood in giant urns. They have a huge staff."

    Well, the great thing about Sprinter™ Boxwood from Shrub Source is that it is compact, slow growing, and has a fine leaf texture. You can steal this look and make it your own on a much smaller scale. The key to this look is repetition of the same shrub and the same container along the walkway. You don't need twelve of these shrubs, but you could plant four or six to create the same formal look.

    Dare to Thrill

    IMG_0316

    Planting a hibiscus in a container is a quick and easy way to add drama. You don't have to wait to get the big beautiful blooms.

    In Naples, FL, their "5th Avenue" of shops is planted from end to end with gorgeous container gardens that change with the seasons. Hibiscus shrubs are a staple for the larger containers. They can be underplanted with "fillers" and "spillers."

  • Loving Lilacs

    Are there any spring-blooming shrubs with as much tradition, as many memories attached as the fragrant-flowered lilac? When you drive through the country, you can see lilac shrubs blooming around tumbled down old porch steps. You'll sometimes see lilacs standing at either side of old cemetery gates. But the lilacs we have at Shrub Source aren't your grandma's lilacs. They are re-bloomers, compact-growers, and more resistant to problems that plague older varieties. Here are our new favorite fragrant flowering shrubs.

    Bloomerang® Purple Lilac (Syringa)

    Bloomerang-purple

    Bloomerang® Purple Syringa is a compact blooming shrub reaching a mature height of 4-5 feet and spread of 5-6 feet. The shrubs are covered with flowers in the early spring, but the plant re-blooms in the summer and keeps blooming until frost. They're hardy in zones 3-7 and are resistant to powdery mildew and root rot.

    Bloomerang® Dark Purple Lilac

    Screen Shot 2014-03-18 at 9.02.57 PM

    This deer-resistant re-blooming lilac starts the show in early spring with tightly-closed plum purple flower buds that open to fragrant flowers beloved by butterflies and hummingbirds. Keep these shrubs looking their best by giving them a light pruning after they bloom. Fertilize after the spring bloom to encourage reblooming later in the summer.

    Scent and Scensibilty™ Pink Lilac

    Scent and Scensibilty™ Pink

    A truly unique lilac, Scent and Scensibilty™ Pink Syringa, has a compact, mounding growth habit with a height of 2-3 feet and a spread of 4-6 feet. It grows best in full sun in moist, well-drained soil. It will re bloom sporadically throughout the summer, but not as reliably as the Bloomerang® lilacs.

    Lilac Care and Maintenance

    If you have older lilacs, the way to keep them blooming beautifully is through renewal pruning. This is the practice of removing one third of the old growth back to the ground each year.

    images

     

    Keeping lilacs pruned helps promote airflow and reduces problems with powdery mildew.

    Newer varieties benefit from light pruning for shape after the spring bloom and application of a liquid fertilizer. Always plant in full sun and well-drained soils to avoid problems with root rot.

    Deadhead (remove spent flowers after bloom) to encourage re-blooming.

    Still grows the vivacious lilac a generation after the door and lintel and the sill are gone, unfolding its sweet-scented flowers each spring, to be plucked by the musing traveller; planted and tended once by children's hands, in front-yard plots,--now standing by wall-sides in retired pastures, and giving place to new-rising forests;Mthe last of that stirp, sole survivor of that family.
    ~Henry David Thoreau

  • Early Blooms Get the Party Started!

    Many of the early blooming shrubs at Shrub Source are newer varieties of old favorites. Flowering quince, lilacs, azaleas, and forsythias factor into many a childhood memory. These are some of the first shrubs to bloom after a long winter. They welcome spring, indoors as forced branches and outdoors when they burst into color. These shrubs have the flowers that serve as centerpieces for Mother’s Day celebrations and graduation parties.

    If your garden doesn’t kick into gear until June, chances are good that you need a few early flowering shrubs to extend the season. Here are some of our favorites.

    Fantastically Fragrant

    Viburnum Spice Ball

    In warmer areas, Spice Ball Viburnum blooms as early as mid to late March. This is a specimen shrub to plant near your front door or back porch so that you can enjoy the wonderful scent of the flowers when it is in bloom.

    Unusual Beauty

    Calycanthus

    Calycanthus is a lesser-grown shrub, but one that everyone should make some room for, if possible. Dark burgundy flowers appear in greatest numbers during the spring, but the shrub will sporadically re-bloom throughout the summer. When not in bloom, glossy green leaves serve as an excellent foundation, screening, or backdrop plant in the landscape.

    Spring Cheer

    A few of the early bloomers are excellent for forcing. You can cut branches from these shrubs in February and bring them inside to put on a spectacular floral display long before the snow melts outside.

    Two of our favorites are forsythia and flowering quince.

    Older varieties of forsythia were huge and rangy, but newer varieties, such as Show Off™ Starlet are more compact growers. This one is also absolutely covered in blooms each spring.

    Forsythia Show Off Starlet

    Double Take™ Pink Storm Flowering Quince always gets lots of appreciative glances when it shows off hundreds of rose-like blooms when everything else in the landscape is still deep in winter slumber. Plus, the Double Take™ series are thorn-less. It cannot get any better than this.

    Double Take Pink Flowering Quince

    Don’t Forget Roses!

    Oso Easy Italian Ice RoseWe are big fans of the Oso Easy™ roses for their, you guessed it, easy care attributes. These are some of the latest of the early bloomers, but they fill the gap nicely between extreme earlybirds such as forsythia and the summer blooming hydrangeas and crape myrtles. These roses will also re-bloom throughout the summer. For unusual color in the garden, plant Oso Easy™ Italian Ice (pictured, yellow center with pink blushing petals), Oso Easy™ Cherry Pie (bright pink single flowers), and Oso Easy™ Paprika—with bright orange blooms.

     Maintenance Considerations

    IMG_1237

    Most of these plants are fairly low-maintenance, but timing on what little maintenance that's required is crucial. Here are some tips to keep early-flowering shrubs looking great!

    • Prune right after the plants are finished flowering in the spring. Early bloomers set flower buds for next year during the summer. If you prune them hard in late summer, you'll cut off all of the flowers. If you make no other change to your gardening habits, MAKE THIS CHANGE!
    • Fertilize after blooming. Most of the spring flowering shrubs will push new growth immediately after flowering. (Pruning can make this new growth bushier and fuller.) Fertilize shrubs with the proper fertilizer at the same time that you prune. (Azaleas, rhododendrons, and hollies all benefit from Holly-tone or holly fertilizers.)
    • Water shrubs after pruning. Whenever you do something that could stress a plant or require it to use more reserves than usual, it's a good idea to water it. (That is, unless you're having higher than usual rainfall.) So, after pruning and fertilizing, make sure to water!

    Following these tips will help you keep your early bloomers looking gorgeous!

    Four-Season Interest

     Berry Heavy® Gold Ilex verticillata

    ilex_berry_heavy_gold

    Get the most out of limited space by planting shrubs with four season interest. These hardworking shrubs need to have lovely foliage, pretty flowers, interesting bark, or eye-catching fruits. Berry Heavy® Gold Ilex verticillata is a Winterberry Holly that has yellow-gold fruits in the late fall and early winter. At a mature height of 6 feet, these make excellent specimen shrubs.

     Castle Gold™ Ilex

    Ilex_Castle_Gold_2

    Castle Gold™ Ilex is an evergreen holly with bright chartreuse leaves that add light and depth to the garden all year long. In addition to the lovely loves, this holly has a big berry display as long as it has a pollinator (male) plant nearby. 

    Fantastic Foliage

     Lemon Lace™ Sambucus racemosa

    sambucus_lemon_lace_1

    One of our favorite new specimen plants, Lemon Lace™ Sambucus racemosa, has show-stopping chartreuse foliage with the lacy look of a Japanese Maple. You plant this elderberry primarily for the leaves, though the flowers and fruits are beautiful too!
