Patio Trees and Roses
I would like to add a couple of small shade trees, in the range of 10-15 foot tall MAX.
Do any of you have smaller trees you like near your roses? I would like to shade a couple of walls on the house and yard. I have 3 volunteers popping up currently and will pot and debate (endlessly) if I want to keep or give away to some unsuspecting person....lol
In keeping with my dads wishes for the garden, we have not added ornamental trees/shrubs other than a couple that we know he loved and struggled to grow (Lilac) Almost all trees are fruit trees, but because of the whole neighborhood rat problem, I am not planting fruit or nut trees near the house. Thankfully the host home of many of the rats has been over run and is taking care of the issue, but at the rate rats multiply it will be a long process.
My current volunteers include jacarandas and I think a mimosa along with a couple that I have yet to identify but think are going to be too big for our yard.
Which do you enjoy?
