Tinkerbelle is a dwarf lilac with a pleasing spicy fragrance and incredible wine-red flower buds that open in late spring. Does well as a tree form, like is shown in this picture. Growing by garage window. Must start training it to grow like a tree.
*Boxwood 'Dee Runk' is reportedly the nicest of the columnar boxwoods tolerating shade and clay soils. Total height of ft tall can be sheared shorter. Max width about two feet. Advantage over other upright boxwoods is dense growth that won't flop open.
