Long Blooming and Repeat Blooming Shrubs

Don’t sacrifice beauty for function when you can have both. Select long blooming shrubs that can screen bad views, create barriers and serve as the framework or a focal point in your landscape. 

Happy Face potentilla is a compact long blooming shrub suited to hot, dry, and sunny locations.  Its yellow flowers top a 2 to 3 foot tall plant all season long.

The repeat blooming lilac - Bloomerang, provides spring and mid-summer to fall fragrant flowers.  It’s perfect for gardeners looking for a longer season of enjoyment.

Hardy disease resistant shrub roses like Knock Out have made these beauties a staple in many landscapes.  Use as a hedge, thorny barrier, or specimen in a mixed border.

Encore azaleas were introduced in the southeastern part of the United States for their multiple seasons of bloom.  These azaleas flower spring, summer, and fall and tend to be more sun tolerant.  Their popularity has helped spread their presence in other growing regions.

A bit more information – Extend the beauty of these and other shrubs by creating mixed borders of trees, shrubs and flowers.  Using a combination of plants with different bloom times and multi-season interest can provide big impact in a relatively small space.
