I'm trying to emphasize more evergreen plants in my yard. I bought an arbutus marina and will put it in part sun/shade area. I have a couple of questions though.
Will it sucker a lot? If it does, are the suckers hard to remove. (I had to take out a prunus incisa 'Snow Cloud' because dense, hard suckers were taking over half the yard).
Will roots be a problem is it's at least six feet away from the house and sidewalk?
Is it difficult to control size? I'd like to hold it to ten or fifteen feet.
Is litter from the tree a serious problem, with staining berries, etc.?
