Our landscape guide breaks down the elements of good planting design into simple, easy to understand “roles” that can be used around your home and yard. Once you identify which roles you are looking to fill in your landscape, you can browse plants that are perfectly suited to them. Whether you are looking to add just a dash of color or for a total overhaul of your yard, Gardening Simplified will give you the ideas and confidence to achieve your vision.
As you browse the pages of Gardening Simplified, you can click through on the plant’s photo and/or name to go to its page on mypwcolorchoices.com to see more photos, get complete details, and to add the plants you’re interested in to a wishlist. Once your wishlist is complete, you can print it out to take shopping at your local garden center.
Check out our videos! We’ve got a series to accompany Gardening Simplified, so you can get a real-life view of our shrubs and see them performing in their landscape roles. You’ll also find lots of how-to content on planting, pruning, and caring for your landscape, as well as lots more plant suggestions.
Thanks for asking! We’re the company behind Gardening Simplified, and the ones who select, develop, introduce, and market the shrubs under the Proven Winners brand. Under this partnership, we’ve introduced North America to a host of new classic landscaping plants, like ‘Limelight’ hydrangea, Summer Wine ninebark, and Double Play Doozie spirea, which graces the cover of the 2021-2023 Gardening Simplified.
Our 325+ shrubs are different than anything else on the market because each one is trialed and tested to ensure your success. The process takes 7-10 or more years as our teams evaluate them not just for beauty but for performance, making sure they outshine the competition. Everyone along the way is committed to introducing plants that make even the most inexperienced planter look and feel like a garden rock star.
Look for Proven Winners® ColorChoice® Shrubs in the distinctive white container at your favorite local garden center. If they don’t carry the variety that you are looking for, ask if they can order it for you from the grower who supplies them with our shrubs.
