When selecting the best shrubs for your garden or landscape, consider how much direct sunlight the space receives. Many shrubs don't like lots of direct sunlight, especially in the afternoon when it's most intense and hot. Shrubs that prefer shaded (less than two hours of direct sunlight) or partially shaded (2-6 hours of direct sunlight) conditions include daphnes, rhododendron and dwarf burning push. These shrubs provide gorgeous foliage and structure to the garden. Some flower, too. Before buying shrubs for sale online, make sure they will grow in our hardiness zone. Also consider their mature height and spread, soil requirements, pruning and maintenance requirements, and foliage and flower color.
