tell me about the *other* Asian maples
I've never grown anything among the small Asian maples outside the traditional "Japanese" A. palmatum.
Aside from the thousands of Palmatums out there, can someone tell me about these:
What is the species like for color, growth rate, height, etc, and what cultivars of note are available for them?
-Acer truncatum x platanoides (forget if there is an "official" name for this hybrid, often I see it called Norwegian Sunset Maple
Feel free to mention others that are noteworthy.
Finally, how would any of these do in my zone, and in my heavy, silt-loam, acidish (5.9 ph) soil? FWIW, although heavy, the soil does usually drain rather well, and standing water is VERY unusual since I'm on higher ground.
Also, would these do well in a more neutral (7.0) soil environment for my friend in Indiana?
