Japanese Maple or Weeping Texas Redbud
We have a circular driveway with about a 10-12' diameter grassy area for planting. We are in Zone 8 and have narrowed our choice down to either a Japanese Maple or a Weeping Texas Redbud. The area gets morning sun (eastern exposure). We don't want the tree to grow more than 10-12' tall. Our deciding factor may well be which one looks best longest throughout the year. May I have opinions?
