Shrub Identification Tips

Evergreen Bush and Shrubs
Unlike deciduous shrubs, evergreens don’t shed their leaves during winter. So it’s easy to identify evergreen shrubs during the cold season. This type subdivides into coniferous shrubs with needles of scales (like junipers) and leafy evergreens (for example, holly or boxwood).
Identifying coniferous bushes involves measuring the length of needles, their amount growing in one spot, and the total plant shape. If you deal with leafy evergreen plants, this process is the same as deciduous shrubs. To learn more about evergreen shrubs, follow the link to see the complete list. We have a lot to show you.
Shrubs used for landscaping are often evergreens like boxwood or cypress. So, inspect the leaves to identify them. Some other options are showy flowering bushes like roses or azalea. They can be identified by flowers too. You can read more about landscape shrubs by clicking the link.
As the name implies, flowering shrubs or bushes have flowers. Most species, except coniferous, can bloom in spring and early summer. After flowering, plants produce seed pods or fruit. If it’s not the season, you have to check the leaves. Follow the link to see the complete list of flowering shrubs.
