Growing Japanese Maples in shady conditions
I am wondering if Japanese maples would grow well under a not-too-dense stand of loblolly pines. I read this somewhere but want to verify. I would love to get one or two as an accent in the shady part of my yard, but I want to make sure that they'll actually grow well. My neighbors have one--their leaf color is beautiful!
(To clarify, these plants would get a little bit of direct sun but would primarily be shaded by the pines.)
Also, any particular varieties that I should choose, or other things to keep in mind?
