Picking the right maple...I'm stuck
I live in Canadian Zone 5-6 (downtown Toronto near the lake) and want to plant a Japanese Maple on the rooftop of our building. Its only about 12 stories off the ground but obviously gets exposed to direct sun for most of the day. To complicate things they would be planted in the center of 5x5x5Ã¢ÂÂ² planters spaced 10Ã¢ÂÂ² apart and then filled with plants around them. (see photo)
I really want an alternating green and bright red combination like Fireglow or Oshio Beni and Pink Lace but realize they probably wonÃ¯Â¿Â½t be able to take the rooftop climate.
Any ideas? IÃ¯Â¿Â½m stuckÃ¯Â¿Â½
