The last time I moved to a new place I really didn't know what would grow there well, so I walked around a lot and took a few drives to get ideas. Almost everything that I found exciting was just too big for my tiny spot so I started with petunias.
I saw a huge plant that I loved near a highway and then spotted a tiny one in a front yard. At the nursery, I asked if they were possibly the same plant and discovered a world of dwarf and miniature plants, many of them hardier and more disease and pest resistant than the originals. I got a “tree? and two “shrubs? in pots.
