Large bold shrubs can add a lot of beauty in a garden. When planted in layers with large shrubs in the back, shrubs and bold grasses in the middle, and dwarf shrubs in the front, the effect can be dramatic. Shrubs or bushes also add color to a garden. When planted with the seasons in mind, they are an excellent source for having color or greenery blooming throughout the year.
