We live near Seattle, Wa. Our tree in the front yard, recently died. Today
we pulled it out and now have a hole in the front yard. We are looking to
fill this space with another tree and were wondering if someone could give
us some suggestions for a tree/shrub.
What we are looking for is something that is unique...easy to maintain,
doesn't grow very high, and looks really beautiful. I've seen some shrubs
in the past that have some pink in them and I really like the cherry
blossoms when they are in bloom.
Thank you in advance for your help.
I've been contemplating planting a fringe tree for a while, but my
soil is a factor against that (very sandy). The flowers and scent are
lovely. (I have seen one growing in an arboretum.)
What I do have growing as an ornamental multi-stemmed tree is an
Amelanchier (serviceberry). White flowers, non-messy berries (which
attract some interesting birds like waxwings and orioles), brght fall
color. Does need some attention to control suckering.
