Shrubs

DSC04012

The Flower Station carries a large variety of Shrubs in 3 gallon to 7 gallon containers.  Although we do not stock large Trees and Shrubs– we will order them from our growers for specific orders.

Below are 2 of our Favorites!

Azaleas tend to be smaller, compact, spreading plants with tiny, evergreen or deciduous leaves.

Growing Environment – Best to plant in shady areas but some varieties can take more sun. Azaleas are more widely adapted to warm summer temperatures than rhododendrons and can grow in all regions of the U.S. except the desert southwest and areas with very cold winters.

Ideal Soil – Highly organic, acidic and well-drained.

Blooms – Most azaleas completely cover themselves with early spring flowers in almost every shade except blue and green. They usually grow three to six feet high. Some deciduous types have good fall color.

Rhododendrons are evergreen, taller than azaleas and have large, leathery leaves.

Growing Environment – Plant in shady areas. Rhododendrons are widely adapted to grow in all regions of the U.S. except areas with extreme summer temperatures or very cold winters.

Ideal Soil – Highly organic, acidic and well-drained.

Blooms – Large flower clusters are born at the end of the branches in early spring, primarily in shades of white, pink, red and purple. However there also are varieties with yellow, orange and salmon colored blooms. In ideal conditions, rhododendrons can grow into large trees, but most garden varieties stay in the five to 10 foot rang
