Are there any dwarf trees for front foundation plantings?
I have been trying to find a shrub or miniature tree for the focal point of my front foundation of my house. My beds are deep but not very wide. (14'w x 18'd)
The house is a colonial with a center stone section and a columned porch. The house has two very large bay windows flanking left and right of the front porch and I thought I would love a Hydrangea tree centered on those windows and work the other plants around that. The Hydrangea won't look very nice in winter.
Does anyone know of a dwarf flowering tree I could use in this design? I have the depth in the bed to support a small tree. Of course I can always use a Rhodadendron
Does this idea of planting a dominant plant in the center of the bays sound too boring? I love when I can see something flowering through my windows.
Would love to hear some suggestions.
