ZONE 5 flowering trees to put along driveway? need help
hey guys . had a question.
me and my girlfriend are looking to add 4 trees along our 120' long driveway (see pic in photobucket link ) .
let me first say that we get pummeled with snow, about 120 inches a year .
im in Northeast Ohio in the snow belt... so i need something hardy .
she likes the flowering pear tree, as i do as well .
we have a dogwood now by the house and it holds its nice white petals for about a week or so .... not really enough time .
we are torn between getting flowering trees like the pear tree ( http://www.tytyga.com/category/Flowering+Pear+Trees ) or japanese maples which have their color for much longer into the summer.
what do you recommend for 4 trees to line the driveway? theres a pic of the front of the yard in the link . the trees lining the other side of the driveway are to the north of the trees we will plant, so they will get plenty of east and southern sun . not too much wind either since the yard is only 150x150 feet square .
