There is plenty of beauty to experience in the world, and the beauty of flowering shrubs is not something to be overlooked. With only a simple area of healthy land, flowering shrubs can turn a dirt pit into a paradise retreat just outside.

Now that Spring is here, the time to plant, prune, and water is upon us. It is time to get out in the yard and get our hands dirty. Aromatic scents of life sit freshly in the air, and periods of fresh rainfall are nurturing to surrounding plant life.

Become a part of all the action by planting a few bright and vibrant blooming shrubs to mark the perimeter of the chosen area. Flowering shrubs are often more hearty and more likely to survive harsh weather conditions or blistering heat. Here are a few solid suggestions for the froggy gardener.

Burning Bush

This fiery plant is known for its vibrant red color and ease of care. There is not much to do with a Burning Bush plant. They can grow in almost any soil type, and they are most suited for growing zones four through eight.


The Spring and early Summer months will display green leaves and tiny red berries. Late Summer and early Fall months will show this shrub’s true brilliance through a stunning burst of crimson in its leaves.

Forsythia Plant

Forsythia is not only fun to say, it is a brilliant plant. Early in the Spring, Forsythia bushes will be among the first to display their capacity for color. This shrub’s flowers bloom bright yellow. They are great for lining the garden or along stone walls. Another addition to the low-maintenance list, Forsythia loves an abundance of sunshine. Without proper sunlight, its blooms will suffer.


Blue Wisteria

Who does not love a bit of blue wispy foliage in their garden area? Wisteria is the stuff that dreams are made of. They cast the mood of a secret, romantic hideaway, and they even look great in the Winter. As it is a vine type of grower, Wisteria will spread quickly along cast iron fences or over a pergola in the yard.
