The Forsythia Shrub

This spring-flowering shrub is highly recommended because it bursts with bright yellow color every early spring, usually before most other plants have flowered.

This particular plant will be shipped to you in a soilless media already established at a height of 2 ft.  Plus, the company guarantees a 30-day transplant!

Forsythias are fast growers and low maintenance.

 

The Witch Hazel Shrub

Witch Hazels are large, brightly-flowering shrubs that are also fragrant. They bloom in early spring with vivid, yellow flowers then they leaf out for the remainder of the year.

This Witch Hazel plant comes fully rooted in the soil and can be planted immediately upon arrival.

These shrubs are low maintenance and resistant to most pests and diseases.

 

The Flowering Quince Shrub

This shrub is a great choice if you’re looking for something drought-tolerant and low maintenance. With large red flowers that bloom early in the spring, this is a tough shrub.

Beware though, most Quinces have thorns so be careful with young children or pets. However, some of the newer cultivars are thornless.
