Tips for success:
- Pay attention to mature size information on the plant tag. Give the plant space to grow that big. Remember the width is as important as the height. Keep it watered. If you plant now — just ahead of summer heat — the shrub will require serious attention to watering through the summer.
- Get the light right. Some shrubs require open sun for six to 10 hours a day. Others will prosper in the sunlight that filters through trees. 5 shrubs for a showy summer
