Proven Winners Shrubs

Shrubs are a cornerstone of many landscapes adding height and color to borders and can be used together to create hedges and windbreaks.

Chuck Hafner’s is the largest Proven Winners®  certified grower-retailer in Central New York, and the foundation of our business since the Hafner brothers began in 1922 has been to only grow and sell the varieties of plants that we know from experience will thrive in your garden. 

Our nursery only stocks the best Proven Winners shrubs in Central New York, sourced from the highest quality suppliers in the country. Throughout the season we have a buyer on the road who hand selects only the best plants available from the growers and nurseries that we partner with. We have been working with some of the same family-owned growers for over 30 years, and we know that their standards align with ours.

New stock arrives weekly throughout the season and is displayed in our 7.5-acre nursery resulting in the widest selection of shrubs in CNY to choose from. The nursery team and growers work together to maintain optimal growing conditions while in our care, giving them the best opportunity to thrive in your garden.

Our team of experts is always on hand to answer any questions you may have, whether it be about the latest varieties we have available or what plant will do best in your landscape.

We also stock a wide variety of Proven Winners perennials and Proven Winners annuals all chosen with the same care so you know they will perform well in your landscape.
