Which tree would be best?
I would like to add trees with fruit for birds to my yard. I already have, in a large raised bed, a Serviceberry and four Blue Muffins, along with the standard perennials, cosmos, black eyed susan, cleome, coneflower, etc.
The tree will be planted near a picket fence with due west exposure. I am planning on three. I would like to use them for a windbrake, planting shade loving perennials, bulbs and shrubs under.
The candidates are:
I am interested in pros and cons of each. Also if there is another better candidate you can recommend. Thanks!
