Higasayama & Purple Ghost in a shady naturalistic area
I'm thinking of planting both a Higasayama and a Purple Ghost on the north end of a row of walnuts in a location I cleared some honey suckle and grape vine from.
The top soil is pretty darned deep for near a house. It wasn't scraped off when my home was built 60 years back and for I bet 20 years it hasn't even had grass on it just leaves rotting.
None the less it still isn't the typical "in the manicured garden" I usually see japanese maples in.
If I keep the weeds beat back can I expect these two to grow if planted 8 or 10 feet from the trunks of my big walnuts?
It would essentially be on the right side of the pic where a number of logs from the pile have been removed. (they've been mostly removed.
