Hardy Flowering Shrubs

for Northeast Florida


Hardy Landscape shrubs for foundation plantings for your Jacksonville or St. Augustine area home or office landscape are listed below.

These are all reliably evergreen items that remain year round with foliage and will have some blooms on them during one or more seasons in the year.

*There are more options that may be shorter lived, more temperamental, or that loose their leaves during the winter that you may want to consider.
