Shrubs and Vines for Atlantic Canada: Choose the best plants for your location

Written specifically for Atlantic Canada, this guide gives you the tools and information you need to select, place, and care for the shrubs and climbers best suited to your garden.

Shrubs and vines make up the skeleton of a garden, providing structure, defining spaces, and contributing to privacy or windbreaks. Some are chosen for flamboyant floral displays, others for colourful leaves. But they can be tricky to grow and maintain in this region’s climate and soil conditions.
