Indian Hawthorn

The Indian Hawthorn prefers sunlight to partial shade and well-drained soils.


boxwood.jpgCan be used in several different ways due to growth pattern and rate. Often used for designs and focal points by homeowners. Because they have extremely shallow root systems, plant boxwoods in well-drained soils. Never plant them close to downspouts or areas that stay wet.


azalea.jpgA popular choice of flowering shrub, the azalea needs partial sun with well-drained soil in an area where it will not have to compete with other flowering shrubs.

Proper planning is needed in order to successfully grow and maintain them.

Crape Myrtle

Be careful not to prune them back too severely to avoid making them disproportionate.


jasmine.jpgA great use for jasmine is to plant it near your house or a walkway so that you can really enjoy its intense fragrance. But, remember that all Jasmines prefer full sun to partial shade.

They grow well in regular soils but don't jam them together so they will have room to grow.

holly.jpgUsed for foundation plantings or low-lying hedges. All hollies grow in full sun to partial shade and do best in slightly acidic soil.

They do not like a lot of nitrogen so remember this in choosing the type and amount of fertilizer you use.
