What is a Shrub?
A shrub is a woody plant that's similar to a tree. Shrubs seldom grow as tall as trees and they have multiple stems instead of a single stem. Like trees, shrubs can be deciduous or evergreen.

How to Use

This index includes the botanical names and the common names of many basic landscape plants. Clicking on a name will take you to a short tutorial about that plant. Watch for links throughout the tutorial that define new terms, provide additional information about a topic, or to view an image of the plant. The tutorial ends with a summary of the plant's cultural information and a list of images for that plant. After you complete the tutorial and summary review, you can take a short, ungraded quiz to test yourself. Have fun!
