I need to plant an ornamental tree that doesn't grow taller than 12 feet.

I had 2 trees struck by lightning and had to have them removed. The power and cable lines ran besides these 2 trees. I don't want any tree I plant to reach these lines. I would also like a tree that wasn't deciduous (loosing its leaves). Maybe even a nice bush would work.

    I'm guessing Walter or some other local folks will chime in with good suggestions. I am reluctant to suggest anything because our climates are so different, and something that does well here may not be suited for Georgia. However, it sounds like a great question for a good nursery in your area. I always like to see and touch the plants I am talking about anyway, so I recommend getting some ideas there.

    How about a weeping bottle brush tree?

    Consider Emerald Green's the right size

    I think you could easily keep a Little Gem magnolia at 12 feet.
