6 Shrubs That Look Great in June

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

June is when all of the work you did last fall and even earlier this year starts to pay off. Shrubs are luxuriously leafy and those that bloom are billowing and beautiful.

Monrovia asked their social media community members what they’re planting for blooms in June (and then added a few of their favorites too!). If you’re looking at your garden and something’s missing, here are a few suggestions for what to plant so that summer kicks off with vibrant colors and rich greens. (Of course, a visit to Wallitsch Garden Center will give you even more awesome options. Or you can shop online at Monrovia with FREE shipping to Wallitsch!)

Crimson Kisses™ Weigela from Monrovia

Readers chose this because it’s got those kicky flowers, but also because it blooms in spring and throughout summer. Great low hedge, too. Up to 3′ tall and wide. Full sun.

Seaside Serenade® Bar Harbor Hydrangea from Monrovia

Coming on a bit later, this was a favorite because of the big flower clusters and sturdy stems. Up to 4′. Partial to full sun.

Flower Carpet® Amber Groundcover Rose from Monrovia

Gets high marks because it can handle a rough winter and bounce back beautifully in spring. Up to 3′ tall and wide. Full sun.

Summer Snowflake Viburnum from Monrovia

Something about the wedding-cake layers of white blooms made readers swoon. And that was before they knew about fall berries. Up to 8′ tall, 10′ wide. Full sun.

Chateau™ d’Amboise Rose of Sharon from Monrovia

Height and scale and those tropical-looking flowers made this series a reader favorite. Up to 6′ tall, 4′ wide. Partial to full sun.

Blue Enchantress® Hydrangea from Monrovia

What’s not to love about big mophead flower clusters in spring and throughout summer? And those black stems! Up to 5′ tall and wide. Partial shade to partial sun.
