Beginner - Zone 5 plants
I'm sure that there has been discussion on this, but I can't seem to find too much by searching.
I am starting to plan a small/mid sized (~600-1000 sq. ft) japanese garden and am needing a little help with what plants I should use.
For trees, I have decided on planting a Weeping Higan Cherry as well as a Acer Palmatum Fascination. I have room for a third one, and would like for it to have most of its appeal during Summer/Early fall.
For bushes, I have chosen a Korean Spice Viburnum, but nothing other than that.
I haven't found too much of concerning low-lying plants, flowers, or ground cover. I suppose I could use one of the many types of low-lying bamboo.
Lastly, I have Phyllostachys nuda that I intend to plant on two rows of terraces (about 1-1.5 ft wide by maybe 30-40 ft). Hopefully they will have enough growing room to survive the winters.
Any suggestions or assistance would be appreciated!
