Groups of 3-5 JMs - Please comment!
So... I have a blank canvas in my back yard right now, and I am planning on putting in a lot of Japanese Maples. I am thinking of clustering them in groups of 3-5, and I am looking for variety and harmony in shape, form, color. If you have any suggestions about switching things around, etc. I'd be very grateful for your input. These are the groups I am thinking of planting:
A: seiryu, shideshojo, tsuma gaki, ruby lace
B: katsura, autumn moon, inabe shidare, villa taranto, shaina
C: orange dream, pacific fire, orangeola, red dragon, mikawa yatsubusa
D: aureum, fireglow, shishigashira, waterfall, crimson queen
E: osakazuki, tamukeyama, winter flame
F: aconitifolium 'dancing peacock', garnet, pacific fire, koto no ito, kamagata
