This topic could go here or in landscaping, so if it needs moved, let me know
Anyhow, I am looking for an idea for a small tree for part of my perennial bed. To the east of it are a "hedge of large round arborvitae and Miss Kim lilacs and an ornamental tree that is about 15' tall. The garden curves around heading south and goes in front of the vegetable garden. I'd like something that only gets 5-6' or so, not a huge canopy, either/and pretty in spring and attractive foilage.
There are a lot of round shapes near it, so something more angular would be nice. Behind the vegetable garden are 5 tall, slender arborvitae and 3 small crabapple trees. Probably not an evergreen, but a deciduous tree would work best.
Thanks in advance for your input.
