Available in a range of sizes, shapes, colors and textures, shrubs are a perfect addition to any landscape design. Whether looking for shrubs to fill empty spaces, complete a design or create a focal point, there is a shrub made for your landscape. Here are some of our favorites: 

 

Sunjoy Todo™ Barberry

This noninvasive barberry has dark purple foliage and year-round leaves to give it color in every season. This shrub requires no pruning, making it the perfect low-maintenance plant. With a mature height and spread ranging from 18 to 24 inches, it is the perfect addition for smaller spaces. 

 

Pugster® Series Butterfly Bush 

Our crop of Pugster Blue® Butterfly Bush.

This hardy variety offers the best of both worlds. Small and mighty, these bushes offer thick stems and the best survival of dwarf varieties. Besides hardiness, they are available in hard-to-find colors, like true-blue flowers in the Pugster Blue® Butterfly Bush and shades of purple in Pugster® Amethyst Butterfly Bush, both offered at Loma Vista Nursery. What we love most of all are the never-ending blooms this variety offers. This hardy shrub is perfect for adding large colorful blooms into your garden or landscape.
