The shrubbery They are plants that can be used to define areas in the garden at the same time as it is beautified, or to have a spectacular patio or terrace. There are many species, but there are some that, due to their size, it is more advisable to have them planted in the ground, and there are others that, due to their reduced height, can be grown in pots.
Well, in this article I am going to tell you what are the best garden shrubs to have in a pot. This will make it easier for you to choose 🙂.
The azalea is a shrubby plant that I love. It has a rather slow growth rate, it is evergreen, and its beautiful flowers bloom throughout the spring. It grows to a height of approximately 50cm, which makes it one of the best options for both pot and garden. Of course, it is important to know what it is acidophilus, and that therefore both the substrate and the irrigation water must have a low pH (between 4 and 6).
Resists frost down to -6ºC; however, high temperatures over 35ºC can harm you.
Oleander is an all-rounder plant. It grows fast up to 1m in height, it is not demanding at all, and it resists both high temperatures (up to 40ºC) and low temperatures (up to -6ºC). It is evergreen, and blooms in spring and also during summer. The only downside is that it is poisonous, so if you have small children or animals you have to keep it away from them, just in case.
Forsythia is a deciduous shrub that blooms very early in late winter / early spring. In fact, it is said that you will know that winter is over when its flowers bloom. It grows to a height of 1m or 1,5m, but if you consider that it is a lot, You can always prune it in the fall to keep it lower.
For it to grow healthy, it must be watered with acidic water and planted in acidic soil or substrate (pH between 4 and 6). Otherwise, resists up to -8ºC.
La Polygala myrtifolia It is a shrubby plant that grows to a maximum of 1m or 1,5m. It has evergreen leaves, and some very pretty lilac flowers. Withstands sun, drought, and occasional frosts up to -4ºC, What more could you want? Put it in your garden or in a large pot and enjoy its color.
And we end up with the rose bushes, deciduous or evergreen shrubs depending on the variety whose flowers are known worldwide. They are spectacular both in the garden and in pots, as they also resist frosts down to -10ºC. Yes indeed, you have to prune the withered flowers, since otherwise it would end up taking out smaller and smaller flowers.
Do you know other shrubs that can be both in pot and in the garden?
