I had a Higan cherry there but it died. Upon some further research the area tends to run a bit on the wet side. Not swampy, but it doesn’t drain as well as most of the yard. I’m looking for a small ornamental tree or large shrub, preferably something that blooms, they can tolerate my borderline zone 6/7 climate, and doesn’t mind at least occasional wetness.
The only thing I can think of is possibly Lagerstroemia if I plant it high enough.
