Japanese Maple wanted - red leaves
I am currently having a new landscape bedding constructed. It will be approximately 8' x 14'. There are walls/windows of the house on one 8' side and one 14' side. We are wanting to plant a japanese maple...variety that has the red leaves. I am in the North Texas (more specifically, just north of Dallas) area. The bed will get some sun during the morning, but as the sun moves across the sky, the house shades this area. Right in the corner where the walls meet, the grass has a hard time growing because of not getting enough sun.
Anyway, I don't know that much about japanese maples so I would like to get your opinion on what japanese maples w/red leaves would do well for us.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
