Spring blooming shrubs

Shrub that blooms in spring: soap bush

Wonderful at the beginning of spring, these shrubs are among the first to celebrate spring in our gardens, balconies and terraces with their beautiful flowers.

They are often major players in our mixed hedges and shrub beds but are also planted, for the most part, as standalones, in pots and garden boxes.
