Vines & Shrubs

Define Your Landscape with Shrubs

Landscape Shrubs have been around, enhancing surrounding settings of land, since the time of the Renaissance Era. Some examples of the most picturesque are the 19th Century Linderhof Castle of Louis XIV in Germany and the 18th Century Gardens of Versailles in France. How about the awesome 20th Century Magical Garden of Disney, with its manicured shrubs of animals?   Even the Harry Potter film had a labyrinth of garden shrubs.

Vines

Vines are a wonderful group of plants; they can yield flowers every month of the year. Trees, posts and poles that go unnoticed can be dressed up with a variety of vines.

They appeal to birds for nesting, and their sumptuous nectars attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
