  •  I can also recommend rose of sharon, (5+ / 0-)

    although, as peregrine kate said, it depends on your purpose.

    Love redbuds, but don't have one.

    I have one rose of sharon. Wanted something for a bare empty corner at the end of the driveway. They can grow tall, but I keep mine trimmed to about 5 feet. That's about all I do. It's hardy, tolerates my neglect, and as jlms qkw said, blooms and blooms and blooms. It starts blooming after most things have stopped and keeps it up through September. Bright pink flowers are a real treat to the eye. The bees like it, too, although I give them a wide berth!

    Loved that little tree!
