Woody shrubs are the most versatile part of the built landscape; they provide texture, seasonality and form to our outside living spaces. We rely on them for visual support, space separation, and for clues about wayfinding and use areas. We also love them for their incredible array of colors and shapes. Our new Landscape Alaska Low Maintenance Program relies heavily on shrubs.

Here is an assortment of our favorite shrubbery, but by no means a definitive list. To learn more about any of the shrubs pictured below, click a photo.
