That was alot of helpful information. I looked at all of the plants you recommended. I like sourwood and dogwood trees. Lilac was also something I was thinking about.

There are so many different shrubs to choose from and it's hard to do research because I don't really know the names of the ones that I like. I plan on going the nursery soon to just look around and see what I find.

Thats a good idea to have some trees and shrubs that attract birds and butterflies. I was wondering if any plain looking green shrubs come to mind?

I've heard alot of people say they don't like the way forsythia looks in the summer when it's so plain and green, but I really do like it. I want a few plants that will be green like that all the time just to balance things out, just throw a few plain ones in the mix.

Thanks for all the help.
