PERENNIALS 

PerennialsPerennials return year after year, forming the backbone of your garden. As long as they are planted correctly, perennials usually require very little maintenance. Every few years, if they become overcrowded, they need to be “divided” in spring or fall.

SHRUBS

ShrubsShrubs are small to medium-sized woody plants, larger than flower, but smaller than trees. They usually have several stems, not just one main stem or trunk, like a tree. A shrub can be less than a foot tall or up to 15 feet tall and may be evergreen or deciduous (dropping their leaves in the winter).

Shop our best selling shrubs: Hydrangea, purple leaf sand cherry, lilac, weigela & willow-dappled. 

EVERGEEN TREES

Evergreen TreesEvergreen trees are known to be abundant in cold areas in the northern hemisphere, including Canada. The evergreen tree holds a distinction as one of the most-purchases species among other trees and shrubs because it has some benefits for the owner.
