The best way to Landscape Tall Shrubs that may Be Potted

Landscaping tall shrubs in pots lends an ease to your garden arrangements. Tall shrubs in pots are mobile, so that you can move them readily to define spaces and make displays. Use tall shrubs in pots to hide pool equipment, fence building or a part of your garden that’s under repair. Move the pots to separate a seating area from a children’s play area or vegetable garden. Use tall hardwood shrubs based on your height need and garden light to ensure they thrive on your mobile landscape for multiple seasons.

Make an 8-foot-tall screen that bursts with bronze color and ages to deep green using Fraser’s Photinia (Photinia x fraseri). Move the container to full sun and water per week to guarantee the containerized shrub thrives in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 7 through 9.

Use Black Bamboo (Phyllostachys nigra) for a very tall screen, 10 to 15 feet in height, which turns drastically black when stems age into their second season. Move the containerized bamboo to multiple areas of your garden, as black bamboo tolerates full sun to partial shade light states in USDA zones 7 through 11. Water on a standard program, either weekly or more frequently as required.

Plant Japanese laurel (Aucuba japonica) to get a hardy tall shrub that grows up to ten feet tall and provides interesting foliage. Move Japanese laurel into shaded areas, as it adapts well to low light. Water as required, although this laurel adapts well to irregular watering and dry soil in USDA zones 6 through 10.

Use Spanish dagger (Yucca gloriosa) within a architectural screen, offering a stunning 6-to-10-foot-tall backdrop in full sunlight spots which emphasize its sword-shaped leaves against a fence or close a patio. Its leaves are smooth at the border, so don’t pose a hazard if brushed against. Keep Spanish dagger comparatively dry, watering only as required in USDA zones 7 through 10.
