Bright/light green foliage

misternoodleyJuly 14, 2010

Could anyone recommend a native shrub (or small/understory tree that could be kept pruned like a large shrub) that has sort of bright, lime green or chartreuse leaves? The only kind I know of are some of the huchera cultivars. Light requirements and soil conditions are somewhat flexible - I just need it to survive in Zones 6ish/7ish. Cultivars are fine with me.

Thanks to anyone who can offer some help with this!

Cercis 'hearts of gold' for a smallish understory tree. There's a gorgeous specimen at the Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore University.

Wow - and a redbud no less (my favorite flowering tree). This is awesome, Carrieb, thanks so much for the tip!
