Any Ideas Guys?

lisalj(z5 PA)June 5, 2006

I want to put something really pretty in the corner of my swimming pool between two small rose shrubs. I had a topiary die there and need something great.

I want something that blooms all summer since it is near the pool. I am thinking something grafted like a rose tree.

I don't want anything too big cause I don't want to shade the roses and it also wouldn't look right either.

I considered a grafted snowball tree also but I don't think they bloom too long.

I live in Western Pa.

Any ideas?

Thanks guys!

Plant a Temple's Upright Sugar Maple (Acer). One speciman, at age 69 in 1971, was 75 feet high with a 12-foot spread. Another had a height of 50 feet and a banch spread of just 1 foot! (from Wyman's Plant Encyclopedia).

Seriously, it's your property and you should put in whatever will make you happy. If you're in Western PA, you'll want to pick something that can handle the winters.
