Under the less severe conditions of seaside exposure there is a greater range of plants which may be used in addition to those shown under Group A. Most of the material in this part of the list is not adapted for use in the extreme northern section of the seacoast.


Plate XXVIII. This open allee is framed on either side by a solid row of closely sheared thorn trees. Its formal lines are softened by the row of pink flowering dogwoods which add a charm of flowers in early spring and of fruit in the late fall. Thorns planted 4 to 5 feet apart and dogwoods 8 feet apart. Width between rows of thorns 22 feet and between rows of dogwoods 9 to 10 feet. (See pages 144 and 147, group XVI-D-b)

Plate XXIXB Plants Hardy in the Less Severe Seaside Exposure 47

Plate XXIX. An open allee 12 feet wide and 800 feet long, developed by the use of white birch planted 3 to 4 feet apart in each row. For a permanent allee of this type the birch is not ideal because of its short-lived characteristics and susceptibility to borer. Thorns, or the European beech would be preferable.
