Healthy Shrubs Provide Shade, Prevent Erosion, and Add Instant Beauty to Your Outdoor Space
Transformative power of shrubs? Dramatic much? Maybe, but it's true! Shrubs are the underdogs of the plant world. Everyone's out there talking about trees and flowers while shrubs are quietly keeping it all together in your yard.
Trees and flowers are pretty powerful, too, but let's talk about shrubs. You have an abundance of choices for North Texas native and well-adapted shrubs, including the intriguingly named Bonanza Gold Barberry and Mexican Fire Hummingbird Bush. No matter your landscaping goals and preferences, there's a shrub variety to meet your needs at Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape.
We're known in Celina, Texas, for drought-tolerant landscaping solutions, including North Texas native perennials, trees, bushes, and shrubs. We grow and tend to them ourselves, so we know they're healthy and ready to thrive in the clay soil and dry climate, helping you reduce your water usage and maintenance tasks. Stop by our garden center and talk to our knowledgeable staff about what type of shrubs might be best for you given your available shade and sunlight, aesthetic preferences, and outdoor lifestyle.

With our expertise and years of experience, we've matched countless customers with the ideal plants for their homes and yards. Take a look at what they have to say about their experience with our nursery and landscaping team:
Shades of Green offers a large, spread out location to purchase many varieties of plants and trees. While there isn’t every variety under the sun, you will find some that aren’t well known. Most are good for the Texas heat and soil.
I needed a tree replaced and I shopped around at the other local tree farms. The staff here seemed much more helpful and they were able to help me with the tree I needed for a fair price. It’s also a nice place just to walk around and browse.
Stopped there with almost zero knowledge on the shrubs, left with the knowledge of expert :-). Elizabeth answered all my questions walked me through the different selections they had in store, and helped me make my decision. I never got disappointed from this place. People like Elizabeth make it more pleasant. Keep up the good job!
Friendly service. Excellent selection of healthy plants. Close to home.
We received amazing service selecting the plants for our backyard landscaping project and the delivery guys were awesome too. Everyone was so helpful and easy to work with. We love Shades of Green and are customers for life. And our yard looks amazing now!

The prices are competitive and the gift shop is packed with unique gifts! I recommend Shades of Green to all of my family and friends.
