How much sun for "Krauter's Vesuvius" plum?
We're at 4500 ft elev. and have a lot of native pinon pine and juniper in the 20-30 ft range. I'd like to plant a few Krauter's Vesuvius flowering plums for color and spring bloom, but I don't have any places with more than 4 hours of full sun because of the larger conifers. Is this enough sunlight? Does elevation affect sunlight requirements?
The garden books say KV grows to 18-20 ft. Some websites say 10 ft. I'd like to know if keeping the KV to about 12 ft would be practical.
