Privacy Shrub Collection for the West is a specially designed collection to add privacy and beauty to your yard. Easily create a private, backyard oasis with these native shrubs. This hedge will also produce habitat for birds and wildlife. Save $10 off the single plant price of $113.91

Included in the Privacy Shrub Collection are 3 plants each of: Chysothamnus nauseosus La Plata, Chamaebatiaria millefolium and Ribes aureum. Chysothamnus nauseosus La Plata (Rabbitbrush) will provide an eye-catching display of golden-yellow flowers beginning in late summer-early fall. Chamaebatiaria millefolium (also known as Desert Sweet or Fernbush) is a beautiful native shrub that brightens the garden in mid-summer with big clusters of bright white flowers. We recommend planting each 6 feet apart with the use of Yum Yum Mix and Root Stimulator Combo Pack for the best results.

We reserve the right to substitute a plant with similar attributes.

Planting Guides
Planting and Caring for Pre-Planned Gardens & Collections

Soil Preparation: Remember that proper soil preparation is the key to healthy, vigorous blooming perennials. Use Yum Yum Mix and a high quality compost at recommended rates to prepare the soil. Inoculate the plant roots with Plant Success mycorrhizal inoculant. Planting: Plant according to the mature size of the plant. Don’t be tempted to put the plants too close based on their size in the pots. They’ll grow quickly and cover the space shown in the planting map. (Maps included only with Pre-Planned Gardens, not Collections.)

Fertilizing: Once annually in mid-fall, after plants begin to go dormant. Use Yum Yum Mix or Yum Yum Mix Winterizer at recommended rates to improve the soil and provide essential plant nutrients.Use it with high quality compost, mix half and half by volume and spread on top of the soil. Scratch it in lightly and water thoroughly. It is also beneficial to treat the plant roots with Plant Success® mycorrhizal root inoculant if you didn’t do so at planting time. (Inoculation only needs to be done once.)

Mulching: In arid climates mulching is very beneficial. Coarse textured composts, shredded leaves, pine needles and composted bark are all excellent mulch materials. Apply to a depth of 1-2 inches. Replenish annually (or as needed).
