If trees are desired near the structure of the house, choose a tree with a small canopy at full growth so that the branches do not interfere with the porch or roof. Placing tall trees in the yard and medium or small trees on the sides and front makes the house stand out (Figure 19-37). The dogwood (Cornus florida), the Japanese flowering apricot (Prunus mume), the Japanese maple (Acer palmatum), the eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis), the deaf wood (Oxydendron arboretum) and the lettuce (Amelanchier) are examples of small trees in the canopy.

Blueberries are a good substitute for a troquel (Ligustrum sp.) Or Asian hedge hedges (eg, Ilex cornuta Burforddi ). Rabbiteye cultivars are more widely adapted to different soils than high-bush cultivars. Rabbiteye blueberries do not tolerate the cold climate of the mountains, but grow well in full sun on the entire northern NC and the coastal plain. Acidic soil (with a pH of 4.5 to 5.5) generally favors the best growth.
