can you recommend an ornamental tree
I am in need of an ornamental tree to go near my new patio. It would be to "anchor" the corner of the gargage (so it would have to stay under the roofline) and the patio. I am not looking for something so small-like a potted patio tree for decoration. I am also thinking a little bigger than the hydrangea trees that I have been seing around the neighborhood. It will be planted in the ground and will get afternoon sun (west-northwest exposure. I don't really think I want a crabapple there. I have heard that serviceberry might be nice from many people, but someone recently told me they think that tree always looks stressed. I am open to other suggestions too. Oh, and most importantly I want something that those pesky japanese beetles won't devour. They just devoured my linden and left my maple alone.
I am thinking of buying them from Twin City Nursery. They have big trees (like 12-18') for $139. The only bad news is that they will only guarantee them through next July since they are discounted. Has anyone ever boght from them before?
Thanks in advance.
