This past March, my husband and I purchased my childhood home. The home still has most of its original landscaping. Yes, that is right...I've been looking at those holly bushes for a long time. I'm craving some color here to break up all the monotonous green. I was thinking even a small tree or shrub would be nice to take up the space left of the window. Here is what I have envisioned:
|Chinese Fringe Flower or Loropetalum|
I thought barberry bushes might be nice, but I really want an evergreen with color or seasonal interest. I've also thought of planting a Japanese Maple or a Mexican Redbud tree to the left of the window. Something silver or variegated might be good for more color or texture. The area gets mostly shade with some sun in the summer. I would love to hear any of your comments or suggestions. Please help blogger buddies and provide your advice.
