We would like to plant a flowering tree on the west side of our lot to provide shade to the porch and color to that side of the yard.
The problem is that I only have about six feet between the edge of a concrete driveway, and the lot line. I do not want to plant a tree with roots that are going to be a problem by cracking the concrete. The neighbors yard is open in this area, and I would discuss it with them before going ahead with the project.
Would some one recommend a flowering tree that would not damage the concrete with its roots, that could be planted about 6' from concrete?
If there is no flowering trees, what about other plants like crepe myrtle.
