Sadly, I need a new tree...
I need some help. We live in Grand Junction (zone 6A) and took a chance last year on a crepe myrtle tree in our front yard. It didn't make it over the winter. So now I am looking for a new tree. Here's what I need...
Tolerates full sun
Drought tolerant/does not need a ton of water (we have xeriscape in our front yard)
Not a white early spring bloomer (we have a snow fountain weeping cherry in the opposite corner of the yard)
It can get tall but not hugely wide (no more than 30 feet or so)
Not a maple (they don't survive where I live-weird local stuff that even the nurseries agree with)
SO, I know this is a tall order but does anything come to mind for anyone? I am honestly at a blank wall. I can't come up with anything. HELP ME PLEASE!!!
