I need help. so many choices, what would you recomend?
I desperately need to know what type of tree would be best for a north slightly north west facing side of a house 4 feet from foundation. It has to be a small 6' to 8' maturity height and ideally be easily pruned to maintain the look of a standard or tidy smallish rounded head.
The pic is what I'm told is the look i'm to duplicate but I don't think this type of tree would do well in the more shaded area i have. I know the image is poor but what type of tree do you think they are/ could they be. HZ 5a, WI
I know practically anything can be pruned and maintained into a topiary but what are some ideal choices, maybe flowering, variegated foliage, silvery foliage, something that has extended season interest
