It's hard to monitor this forum without becoming more interested in Japanese Maples. So far, I have Bloodgood, Osakazuki, Seiryu, Orangeola, and Waterfall (dispensing with genus and species). Now, I want more! The growing conditions here are not ideal so I'm looking at smaller varieties which could, if necessary, be happy in containers. Two that appeal to me are Acer palmatum 'Matsukaze' and Acer shirasawanum 'Sensu'. If availability is not an issue, I am interested in which of these is considered to be easier to grow.
