Does anybody no what the best tree or scrub for a shady area is and has some colour!!!!!!!


How much space do you have, Samantha? Height, depth and width. 

What type of soil? Dry, wet, sandy, clay?

Any sun at any time of day or none at all?

There is quiet a big space, as we have just built new area, soil is very good, and the sun is there a little bit, but not a lot!!!!!


Crab apples, Rowans and Amelanchier lamarkii would all be fine. Shrubs like Viburnum will also do well - mariessii is particularly attractive, and  Hydrangeas will also be a good  choice.
