Greetings, I was thinking of using Salix Purpurea ÂCanyon BlueÂ Dwarf Arctic Willow as a transition between conifers and deciduous trees but then I came across Deutzia which is reported to be best used among conifers . . . but it only blooms for two weeks. That's a short time for a plant to take up room the rest of the year. Any thoughts or suggestions?
