ColorChoice® Shrubs and Bushes—Not your grandmother’s greenery

Shrubs (also called bushes) play an important role in home landscaping.  Shrubs are woody perennial plants with multiple stems that provide visual interest and structure, as well as privacy and traffic control planted in the ground and in containers.  Used solo, a shrub can be a dramatic a focal point.  In groupings, they become hedges forming borders, windbreaks and screens.   

Proven Winners ColorChoice® shrubs are sourced from all over  the world, then tested and trialed in North America for a minimum of 5 years before being introduced to local gardeners.  These are the special traits we look for:

Hardiness in more zones Easy care with less pruning
Prolific blooms Dwarf or compact growth habit
Continuous color (foliage, bark, seeds) Unique appearance or use
Multiple seasons of interest Superior overall performance

Available exclusively from Proven Winners®, ColorChoice® shrubs provide new and experienced gardeners with an unusual palette of color and texture guaranteed to elicit oohs and aahs.  

For example, Arctic Fire Red-Osier Dogwood produces clusters of white flowers in late spring, then sheds its deep, dark green leaves in fall.  In winter, the shrub’s upright, intensely red stems become sculpture-like adding unexpected color and drama to an otherwise dreary landscape.
Some of the most popular Proven Winners shrubs are easy-to-grow Hydrangeas bursting with colorful blossoms. Take a look at Invincibelle® Spirit, the first-ever pink Annabelle Hydrangea. With hundreds of Color Choice® shrubs now available and more on the way, why settle for only evergreens?
