Planting dwarf cherries near the house
I am trying to add some attractive edible landscaping to a home with the standard newly-built subdivision (read as "boring") landscaping. I am considering the purchase of a several (3-4) dwarf Montmorency or dwarf North Star trees to plant along one side of the house.
I would be planting them about 5 ft from the foundation of the house. Has anyone seen these trees used as foundation plantings or would the roots near the foundation be too problematic? How tall and wide do these dwarf cherry trees normally get?
Does anyone have any thoughts on the differences between the Montmorency and the North Star?
