BLOOMERANG® Series

An introduction to using BLOOMERANG® lilacs in your landscape or garden

Whether you're redoing your entire landscape or looking to add a new shrub or two to spruce things up, including a few native shrub varieties is an easy way to not only narrow down the options, but to make your planting a little more eco-friendly.

Birds, butterflies, bumblebees, and other pollinating insects tend to be adapted to using native plant species for food and shelter, so from their perspective, your landscape more closely resembles what they're used to seeing. Attracting and supporting these animals is not only fascinating and rewarding, it also helps support their dwindling populations.

It's a common misconception that native plants will automatically look wild or unkempt. In fact, many North American native species have long been popular as landscape plants, like potentilla, ninebark, and 'Annabelle' hydrangea. In fact, your landscape may already include native shrubs and you don't even know it!

North America is a big place with a widely varied climate, so what it means for a shrub to be native is, naturally, relative. However, by using the USDA hardiness zone system, you'll be able to narrow the selection of Proven Winners ColorChoice native shrub varieties just to those that will thrive where you live.
