Plantings with Japanese Maples?

DeborahB1952(9)September 20, 2012

I'm planting two Red Dragon Japanese Maples, each in their own large, tiered planter boxes. Any ideas for what to plant beneath them?

It depends where in Zone 9 you are.

Stick with something low growing and shallow rooted - low growing sedums (aka "stonecrops") are a good choice.
