What would you choose?
I have lost a 40' (unknown type) maple to the ice storms here. Peeled it like a banana. Quite shocking.
Anyway, with any loss comes opportunity. I now have a place that offers severe sun, but late afternoon shade. What this means at the peak of our summer/heat, is that from 3:00 -> sunset, it's in shade. It does get full, unmitigating sun until then, though.
I'd like to try using one of my many (138) Japanese Maples here. If you could choose any upright that you know would take that kind of horrible heat and sun, what would you pick? Height will not be an issue.
Thanks for your thoughts.
