Assorted Shrubs

Below is our list of shrubs where we only carry one or two varieties within that species, and because of our limited selection they are too small to qualify for a category of their own. 

 

*Please note that the list is not current - it is a generalized list of our selection. Selection changes based on sales  and seasonal availability. If you're looking to request a specific variety of shrub, please call the store.*
