Gold Rush Redwood near cream deck?

whaas_5a(5A SE WI)July 25, 2012

Alright from a plant mix this Gold Rush Redwood would look great. But if you are looking out from the yard towards the house I think the Gold colored tree will look funny with my cream colored deck and beige colored house.

Any thoughts on this? Right now I have a green tree shown to the right that is getting pulled. To the left is a purple maple so I don't know if another purple tree would look too blendy. The massing/repeating is done with the shrubs below (not shown).

This is the bet pic I have off hand but should give you an idea. The curves have been softened a bit.

Gold or purple tree?

My choice would be something silvery blue, purely from a color standpoint. But the redwood is pretty, too. Just mega-bright contrast from the purple, but that could be fun.

Funny you mention that as I originally wanted a blue color evergreen there but I just didn't want to give up the clearance there. I do have Blue Shadow fothergilla to get the blue in that area.

The DR ended up looking better than expected.
