Garden Shrubs

This chart lists 58 flowering shrubs by their common English names, followed by their botanical names. The numbered zones in which each shrub can be grown are keyed to the map on page 282. In the chart’s third column the approximate height for each variety is listed. Colored circles in the fourth column indicate the range of flower colors usually produced by each shrub or its relatives. To the right of the colors is the shrub’s blooming season. The Special Characteristics column contains uses to which the plant is well suited—a hedge or a ground cover, for example; its soil and sun preferences; and the presence of fruit, attractive foliage, or a pleasant fragrance.
