    Hi everybody,

    Need your advice please .

    I am looking for a small tree/shrub for the front of my house, front entrance to the door has lawn on either sides , wouldn't want the tree to grow taller than 5m/6m tall and that will blossom during spring or autumn ..And lastly not blocking out light and potentially the roots not damaging the foundations .

    What are your thoughts about this tree please ( malus purpurea crimson cascade ) will it shed a lot of leaves and cause a nuisance on the lawn you reckon ?

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated .

    Thanks and Stay Safe

    Do you have a dog?
    Malus 'Crimson Cascade' can be toxic. Its seeds are toxic to dogs.

    I'd suggest an Amelanchier lamarkii or canadensis, white blossom, small fruits and good autumn colour. Doesn't get too large and roots not invasive.
