sand cherry shrub - pros and cons
I am new to this forum, but have been reading it for several months. I live in West Texas and am considering a new shrub - the sand cherry. I love purple leaf plum trees, but do not have room in my landscape for one. I wanted the same in a shrub, but the closest I can find is the sand cherry shrub.
Is this a hardy, fast growing choice? I do not know anyone growing it in West Texas, but all of the info that I have found points to it being compatible with our climate and zone. It will be in a bed that will get regular water.
Will it also grow in partial shade and keep its maroon leaves? I am also curious if it could be trained into a small accent tree in a corner bed.
Thanks to anyone who can give me some input on this!
