Oshio Beni for Zone 10?
Several of our local nurseries in San Diego are selling Japanese Maples and we'd love to be able to plant one. After searching through scores of information online, it doesn't appear that anyone recommends these for zone 10. The Oshio Beni plant tag is listed as "full to partial sun, no more than 120 days > 85 degrees". The grower is Monrovia.
So if we plant this tree in a location eastward facing location where in gets morning sun till 1 PM then is shaded by the house for the remainder of the afternoon, what are the chances it will be happy?
Thanks in advance for the insight.
