Can you mix HTs and OGRs in a border/bed?

14 years ago

The way our property is structured, I have a lot of small to medium beds, but no place yet for a large bed. I am wondering how it looks when you mix an HT form with more shrubby forms like teas, chinas or even modern shrubs.

Say you wanted to make a bed and put in 3 Lafters, Duchesse du Brabant and an Arethusa. Mind you, this is hypothetical, I have not decided on anything like that. But does the upright form of the HT look awkward among shrubs?
