small tree or large shrub for corner of house

16 years ago

Hello, I usually hang out in the Cottage Garden forum but I thought I would get some very good advise on design for the front of my house from this forum.

We added an addition on our ranch house this year and I am now trying to landscape around the new part. The existing has Indian Hawthorne and Soft Touch Holly and some ornamental grasses mixed in. Since the house is long with the addition I wanted to add some virtical height to corners but I dont want the plantings to get so big they over power the house.

It is a single story house that faces west. One corner is in shade and the other gets sun with some filtered shade.

I was thinking of a small crape myrtle tree (Acoma white) or large shrub like a doublefile viburnum.

What would you suggest?
