Aloysia virgata - almond bush
We need a small tree for our front yard to provide balance to an existing crepe myrtle. I've been considering limbing up an aloysia virgata (almond bush) into tree form.
I'm wondering, however, how "dirty" a tree it might be. Would I regret planting it near a driveway? It would probably be planted about 6-8 feet from the edge so another issue is the root growth; would it tend to heave the drive?
Any input you can share would be appreciated.
