New planting opportunity
With the imminent removal of my Coral Bark Maple, repositioning of my shed and removal of our decking a new planting opportunity has arisen. I am looking for suggestions for a suitable small tree. There is just so much information out there that my head is buzzing so I'd thought I'd ask for some ideas. I wasn't sure whether to post here or in the garden design section - so apologies if this is in the wrong place.
One end of this border is Betual utilis Moonbeam underplanted with my special snowdrops, hellebores, aconites and yellow crocus. At the opposite end (currently behind the shed) is Sorbus cashmiriana with white berries with no underplanting at the moment. There is also a yellow berried Pyracantha I am training on wires to provide fence cover.
Once the shed is moved I will have around 15ft of border to play with and I thought it would be an ideal spot to continue with my yellow/white/green theme. The area is sunny from around 11am until 8pm at the height of summer.
The only obstacle in my way is the fact I have to be mindful of the telephone wire that runs directly over this spot of the garden but I do need some height for summer privacy. In winter it doesn't bother us too much. I am on the east coast of Scotland so the tree needs to be hardy and able cope with wind. Once this new tree is established I also plan to grow some yellow stemmed cornus in between the trees. These I can obviously keep the height in check.
I would also like something to benefit the wildlife too. I am hoping you kindly bunch have a few suggestions up your sleeves. Thanks in advance.
