Green Weeping lace leaf maples
What would you consider some of the best in terms of looks and able to handle full sun in zone 5/6 Northeast Ohio? I was leaning towards Acer palmatum 'Viridis' or 'Waterfall'.
I found out the hard way a couple years ago that a lot of the generic Japanese maples fry in full sun. I know these maples like to grow under taller trees, but I'm wondering if some of the green ones are able to handle full sun. I have some that seem to do fine in full sun, they do fry a little come the middle of August, but otherwise ok. I need a replacement for Acer palmatum 'Autumn Moon'. Over the past 2 years it has fried to a krisp... but still puts out nice growth and looks good until July. I don't have any shade so I can't really transplant it anywhere.
