I am so ashamed
Ashamed to have not solvd this issue on my own. I study my Sunset Garden book, visit nurseries and still the need is glaring at me. I feel so stooopid! The stumper for me is the lighting that goes from medium light shade, to filtered sun , to a very brief afternoon period of full sun. Posting photos so you can see , like a zillion others, ( sorry) i'm seeking a privacy fix.
Yes, perfect for a Jap. Maple, but they can be tricky in my zone 10 ( western 24), So. Ca. , 5 miles from ocean....also, too slow growing for this grandmom, and deciduous.
Please help. Again, i apologize for askng :>/
