Recommendations for a smaller flowering tree in zone 5?
Hi! We are in Chicago suburbs (zone 5). I have redone the front yard and landscaping and next spring, it should finally emerge a garden... I'm looking to put a smaller (8-12 ft) flowering tree in a semicircle at the corner of the house. It'll have 3 twist and shout hydrangeas at its base and will be close to my climbing roses. Happy to post a pic of the layout if that helps..
I know nothing about garden trees, so I really need help... Did some looking online and so far, on paper, Weeping Snow Fountain Flowering Cherry sounds fabulous. Also, pink cascade weeping peach tree sounds interesting. (cherry really has my attention, though)... Are those good choices? Can you recommend any other trees?
