Design IdeasSlightly larger than its immediate siblings, Zuni is the consummate small tree for city gardens. Intense watermelon-pink flower color is breathtaking during the late-summer lull in the garden. Special mildew resistance is ideal for city gardens, townhouse entries and condominium patio. Use as accent or to cover unattractive views on a small scale. Buy as a single-trunk standard specimen for semiformal containers or for tidy raised seatwall planters. To compound its impact, choose multiple trunks for a wider canopy that supports a greater number of flowers. Plant where you can enjoy its beautiful multicolored bark and sinuous branches up close.
