Perennial Shrubs Canada

Collection by Carolyn Shaughnessy


The back bone of a great garden. You always need a base to showcase your perennials. These are my favorite for colour, shape, contrast, depth. All showstoppers in the garden easy to grow in Canada beautiful and hardy. I particularly like the yew evergreen as it stays compact and has a soft flat needle that is comfortable to work with and sculpt. I trim the bottom of my shrubs to bare branches and plant under them, looks amazing.
