which JM to choose

madisonwigardenerMay 14, 2010

Hi, I am writing to ask for suggestions in the choice of a japanese maple. I am in zone 5, would like a lacy leafed, (thus would it be a dissectum?), also pendulous or cascading, and not too tall (4 feet or so), and has nice color in the shade. Any suggestions for possibilities would be great! I thought of red dragon but have been told that it prefers full sun and I really want one that is happy is partial shade. Thanks for any suggestions! Debbie
