where to plant japanese maple??
I live in pensacola,florida(the gulf coast)zone 8. I wanted to to purchase a red japanese maple to plant near a window for a nice view. The area gets no sun until about 1:00 and then straight afternoon sun. I was told that japanese maples don't like too much sun (it turns the leaves brown). would that area still qualify as "too much sun?" Please keep in mind that pensacola is NOT the midwest-our afternoon sun is pretty intense and many plants that may thrive in full sun in other parts of the country wouldn't stand a chance here. I really want to plant the tree in that spot, but not if it means throwing away a $150.00 mothers day gift! thanks
