The Different Types of Plantings

Shade Trees:Shade trees grow to 45′ and up to 75′ tall and 25 to 40′ wide; not normally flowering but many have good fall color. Some popular shade trees include Oaks, Maples, and Elms.

Ornamental Trees:Ornamental trees grow to 18 to 35’ tall and 15 to 35’ wide; most flower and some have fall color. Some well know ornamental trees are Magnolias, Service Berry, and Redbuds.

Evergreen Trees:Evergreens screen your property and create privacy. They look pretty much the same all year long providing evergreen color during the winter. No flowers or fall color but they are evergreen.

Shrubs:A shrub is a small to medium-sized woody plant.

Perennials:Perennials are small flowering plants that grow and bloom over the spring and summer, die back every autumn and winter, and then return in the spring. Most will flower for 3-8 weeks and/or have striking foliage color.

Annuals:An annual plant is a seasonal flower that completes its life cycle within one year, and then dies. Annuals will need to be replanted every year but have dramatic flower color during their entire life-cycle.
