Embarrassingly, am still pondering this one.
Bumped up for photos really.
I am now considering the following:
Prunus - conical shape, crimson leaved variety.
Fagus (beech) - conical variety - not at home to check so excuse spelling etc...Dwark purple and dwark gold, alternating.
I like the idea of a 'striking' 'in your face' look to draw eye down to this part of the garden hence why I think alternating purple and yellowy lime leaves.
Beech appeals as I expect it will give better winter screening.
Prunus for the purple leaves and for the flowers of course.
What mix would you have?
Must get into action soon!!!
