Shrub Hedging

Shrub Hedging

There is a fine line between garden shrubs and hedging plants. Generally, the hedge plant is the coarser, parent variety, whiile the shrub is produced after a careful program of cross breeding or selection. Some species, however, are just so "perfect" that there seems little need to try to improvem them. Many of the shrub plants in this list are just that.
