Deciduous shrubs, those that lose their leaves in fall, give seasonal color and texture to the landscape. Flower and fruit displays, interesting foliage shapes and colors, and even bark color and texture add outdoor interest. Shrubs don't just have pretty faces, they can serve a definite purpose as border plants, accent plants with seasonal color, wildlife habitats, or as screening against an undesirable view or for privacy.

The right shrubs can bring a sense of completion to your landscape design, but determining which shrubs to choose can be a difficult decision. The University of Illinois Extension has created a Web site titled "Selecting Shrubs for Your Home" where homeowners can search the U of I shrub database by size, light exposure, use, and tolerance of various conditions and learn more about the particular shrubs that meet the entered criteria. But the best way to make wise choices is to check with the garden professionals at Reds. We'll help you select the best shrubs for your purpose and design, resulting in a garden that is both aesthetic and functional.
