need suggestion for landscape border
Purchased a yoshino cherry tree yesterday and I'm planting it in a crescent-shaped area with Japanese dwarf juniper and Zagreb coreopsis. The coreopsises will be planted more towards the tips of the crescent shape.
The cherry tree flowers are pinkish-white and blooms in April. The Zagreb blooms all summer (I think). I chose the this particular coreopsis because the leaves are very fine and delicate looking -- to hopefully give the same feeling of the cherry blossom flowers in the spring.
I'm trying to figure out a good border plant to outline the crescent shape. Any suggestions? I was thinking of ipheion, but some have called this plant invasive and almost weed-like if it gets out of its space. I think the blue and white flowers of this plant would contrast nicely with the others.
