Suggestions for shrubs/trees to grow in shade, zone 5?
I have a large lightly wooded (and heavily weeded)area that hasn't been taken care of in years. I love having the different layers of trees, however most of the medium sized plants are invasive, mostly buckthorn. Assuming I can get a good part of this cleared out I want to replant something that will grow at about that height or less. Anyone have suggestions for shrubs/trees that will grow to about 10 feet, give or take a few feet either way? Must be able to survive in shade and zone 5. Thanks
