Spring-blooming shrubs

Shrubs add color and structure to any bed or border — especially in spring. And they’re a great choice if you don’t have a lot of room in your yard but still want the height and architectural interest a tree provides.

The first flush of bright yellow flowers of forsythia is a beacon of spring, letting you know what you can look forward to. Count on early spring bloomers to kick-start the show in your garden, and watch the color keep coming with later spring bloomers like dwarf fothergilla and gardenia. Click through the slideshow below to learn about all 5!
