Help me select a tree
Any suggestions for this setting ... I require a small (ish) tree, something that'll stand out against the background. A 'Prairie Splendor' Norway maple is planted nearby and a beautiful 'Mancana' ash is tucked off to the side. The area is moist, I mean that water drains and runs through there in periods of excessive moisture and although water does not sit, the ground stays moist.
I was thinking of a 'Littleleaf' linden or a nice weeping willow, but a willow gets big, though I did come across a smaller growing weeping willow with nice bluish foliage. IÃ¢ÂÂd love a variegated tree, though can only think of the Japanese variegated lilac. The location is too moist for anything in the crabapple family. Of course, grass will be sown and IÃ¢ÂÂm also putting in a sitting area and fire pit. A burr oak was planted, it didnÃ¢ÂÂt even get staked before I realized it doesn't look so great there and will need to be removed.
