Shrubs

Shrubs

Shrubs are typically defined as a woody plant arising from multiple stems at the base.  They are typically smaller than trees (under 20 feet (6.09 m)) although many trees can be classified as shrubs depending on where they grow and how they are cultivated.  Shrubs are typically broadleaf although some smaller conifers are classified as shrubs.  They can be deciduous or evergreen; some provide flowers and fruit, while others provide seasonal interest with colourful leaves, berries, or bark.  Landscapers often consider shrubs the backbone of the garden: their permanent structure provides visual interest in the winter, helps to define spaces, and creates screens for unsightly elements in the landscape sizes and textures.
