looking for a plant suggestion

klc0812(8)July 25, 2008

Hi there!

I am putting together a small memorial garden...I will have a small waterfall/pond and I would like to include a small japanese maple of some sort....thinking possibly a weeping variety or dwarf....or possibly both. The garden is in honor of my 14 yr old niece who we lost last November....so I would like it to be something beautiful that really stands out! I know there are so many....but any that immediately come to mind? I have also considered leaving it (or one of the two) in a beautiful container...maybe a dwarf. There will be a few white roses in the area as those were her favorite....they will be climbers....so a white backdrop if you will.

this is the waterfall we want to do:

The area gets early afternoon sun. Any suggestions on varieties that would work well...?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Three japanese maples to consider are Mikawa Yatsabusa and Murasaki Kiyohime which are both dwarfs and Red filigree Lace which is a very fine textured and slower growing red weeping type. David
