What do you think of this substitute for a Japanese Maple?
I have followed the threads over the past year or so on growing JM's in Minnesota. I'm a zone pusher too but I don't think I would have the success that Mike and others have had in the cities. So I started looking for oriental looking plants that have the general idea of a JM for my conifer garden and stumbled on this sumac.It has a cutleaf foliage and I'm thinking you could prune it to look like a small tree. See what you think, I'd be interested in comments or other possible JM mimics.
