Deciduous and flowering shrubs provide structure, mass, persistent interest, as well as food and cover for birds and beneficial insects. This course will examine in detail the best shrubs for our area. Examine cultural requirements, aesthetic value, potential pitfalls, and how best to integrate these plants into the landscape. Study new cultivars of well-known shrubs, as well as genera and species that deserve to be better known and more widely planted.
