Evergreens make life easy!

Evergreen varieties of Gardener's Confidence plants are so easy to care for! They have been bred and selected for minimal maintenance, disease and pest resistance, and most of all, many years of beauty in the landscape!


Providing a broad range of size, form, color and texture, evergreens create a perfect framework to unify the garden throughout the seasons.


Evergreen shrubs and trees can take up to three years for their new roots to grow into the surrounding soil and become established. When this happens, you’ll notice that your plant is growing faster.


Tip:  If after a few seasons, your healthy evergreen has grown to a size that you like, you can cut back on the amount of fertilizer you use in subsequent years, and this will also allow you to further cut down on pruning!
