suggestions for small japanese maple

judyokAugust 17, 2009

I have a new garden spot at the northeast corner of my house that starts getting shade around 1:30 or 2:00 in the afternoon and I would like to plant a dissectum or a dwarf palmatum in that location. The ultimate width of the plant is more of a concern than the height it needs to grow no more than 6 or 7 feet wide. Kamagata sure looked gorgeous and would be small enough. Are there any others that you can suggest that would fit that spot. I open to all colors.

'Skeeter's Broom' is a choice narrow growimg palmatum cultivar.

Wow what a beautiful plant! I see that it is for sale at Sooner plant farm which is in Oklahoma, not that far from where I live. Thank you for the suggestion.

Skeeters is an awesome plant. I also like 'Twomblys Red Sentinel'. Actually most of the smaller varieties can be kept in line with proper pruning, and many of the dissectums stay somewhat narrow and compact. I'm in love with 'Ornatum' right now. And don't forget the Japonicums. 'Fairy Lights' is my fave, and is smaller and slow growing.
