choosing a japanese maple?
I would like to buy a japanese maple as a focal tree for a garden my daughter in law has made. I am not familiar with the types but want the tree to be about 15 ft tall at full growth. i think the red would be beautiful with the color of siding and trim. I want a definite look of a maple leaf. Can someone tell me what to look for and how large will transplant well? Should it be in a protected area? Should it be tethered? Is there a fast growing type or are they all mostly slow growers? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
