I am short of space, especially re spread so I am looking for a JM which is tree like ie not a a spreading bush, which will grow to about 5 foot in height, has red foliage through the spring and summer and whose leaves are *not* the dissected, lacey style. What do you suggest?
Which JM might fit the bill?
rouge you will want to look at dwarf maples - there are many to choose from - your best bet is to check some online resellers and search what they are offering for dwarfs and come back to us with your choices which we can commment on.
Thanks for the post. I have done some looking on line but I have yet to find a dwarf JM that satisfies the conditions I have listed.
I have the Akita yatsubusa and it get only 4 ft tall. It is a natural dwarf tree.
Marie, I would love to see a picture of your yatsubusa in your garden.
Try twombley's red sentinel. Beautiful red. Also, Skeeters Broom fits the bill. I will send pics if there is still interest in this question.
