How much sun?
A laceleaf Japanese Maple planted last year did not come back this year, I was thinking it probably was getting too much sun, especially the afternoon sun! But, after reading gazillions of posts here, I think it also could have been from the winds over the winter.
I just purchased a "Weeping Japanese Maple", the only other information on the tag says it's an acer palmatum dissectum. Not really giving me enough info as far as which type it is! It's a purple color lace leaf, about 2 feet tall and it says it can get 7- 10 feet tall and wide. I can post a picture if needed. Also, it needs partial shade. My question is, how much sun will this take? I was wondering if 6 hours of morning sun would be too much? Or, if I planted it on the north side of the yard, it will be well protected from winds, and get a few hours of sun in the morning, and then some sun in the afternoon, but not full sun. I want to give this beauty the best chance possible. Any help is appreciated :) Thank you!
