What to plant to replace dwarf Alberta spruce
Lost my dwarf alberta spruce last winter...I have to take it out...right at front entrance. Need to replace it.
It is at the edge of my eaves (1950's ranch style home). There is about a 10' high clearance, and the tree is 10'x5'
Any ideas for a small tree? Or large shrub? Ideally, it would get close to 10 ft tall. I have a witch hazel on another corner of the house and it got a little too big, so I have to prune it to keep it down. Obviously would like something different, anyway.
I'd like to be able to buy a fairly mature plant, since taking the tree out will leave a huge hole.
