6-foot full sun japanese maple
Am looking for a Japanese maple that fits the following bill: 1) can be kept at 5 to 10 feet tall; 2) will take full sun from sunup til 2 p.m. in May, June and July (with less sun in August and only about 2 hours by December-January); 3) can survive in Zone 5 winters, in a protected area, in the corner of a 6-foot fence, on the north side of a townhouse, getting north and east sun AND 4) will brighten up a dark patio, so am trying to avoid very dark, large leafed maples like the Bloodgood, although I like the dissected burgundy-colored maples. I also like the Gold FullMoon maple, but am told I get too much sun for it to survive. Do you agree? Suggestions please!
