Your journey to a beautiful landscape starts here

Selecting the right plants can be intimidating – Proven Winners ColorChoice makes it easy with easy-care shrubs for every climate, taste, and space.

The time is now.

Did you know that fall is an ideal time to plant shrubs, trees, and perennials? It’s true: the shorter days and cooler temperatures help plants get established quickly, which means less work for both you and the plant. There’s no better way to ensure a more beautiful spring and summer next year than to plant now.

Whether you are looking for the classic beauty and high performance of Perfecto Mundo reblooming azaleas, the eye-popping color of Center Stage crape myrtle (pictured at right), or want to start on your own personal collection of fabulous hydrangeas, you’ll find the perfect Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrub for your project.

Explore our 320+ different flowering shrubs, save them in a printable wish list, then visit your local garden center to get your new project started. Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrubs are easy to find, thanks to their distinctive white containers, and you can have confidence, since they’ve all been trialed and tested by expert horticulturists for 8-10 years. That’s why we always say – 

A Better Landscape Starts with a Better Shrub!
