There are many different types of deciduous shrubs, including:
- Flowering: Includes roses, clematis, and hydrangeas.
- Foliated: Includes boxwoods and forsythia.
- Fruit Bearing: Includes blueberry and raspberry shrubs.
Deciduous shrubs are usually found in temperate climates. They thrive in climates with four distinct seasons, where they can go through the natural process of losing their leaves and then growing new ones in spring.
Most deciduous shrubs are easy to take care of and require minimal maintenance. They should be watered regularly during the growing season, as well as pruned to encourage healthy new growth. Planting in well-drained soil and mulching the base can help to retain moisture and maintain health.
