Foundation Planting Bed - Tree or Shrub?
I am in the process of planning (and some planting) of my foundation flower bed. My front yard is west facing and sloping downward; the planting bed stretches from the top of the 'hill'and goes downwards on one side of the lawn.
As you can see, there is a huge hydrangea at the bottom of the bed (planted by previous owners). My plan is to transplant it in the spot just under the window. So the hydrangea will be at the top and very back of the flower bed. I also bought a couple of Viburnums (Spring Bouquet) to go on the either side of the hydrangea.
Now I'm wondering if two viburnums are a good idea or if I should do just one viburnum to the left of the hydrangea (on the side of the blue door) and do a short tree on the other side, instead? If I decide to go with a tree it can't be taller than 10 feet or so.
What do you think - should I just stick to the original plan of viburnums on either side or do one tree instead? I'd prefer not to have a maple... are there any shorter trees that you could recommend? Thanks for any help or suggestions that you may have!!
