Wrong Spot

Lovely lovely white Lady Banks (Rosa banksiae banksiae), but it really wants to be at least 20' (7 m) to start with in all directions.  Eventually they'll get tired of trimming it, and it will go.

And Lemon-scented Gums,Corymbia citriodora (Eucalyptus citriodora), potentially 160' tall, planted directly under power lines.  So they topped these graceful trees, rendering them clumsy and sad.

Wrong spot.  Wrong, wrong, wrong.
