I'm winding down my first ever season as a gardener, with a wonderful new Japanese moss garden in my backyard. I'm starting to think ahead to the rest of the property, and I want to place some striking Japanese Maples around.
Currently, I have a green variety that purportedly turns golden yellow in the fall (soon!) and two bloodgood varieties.
My question is, what's your favorite cultivar? What's the one that makes people stop and stare throughout the season? It looks like I'll have fall covered with golden folliage, so something bright and striking in spring/summer would be a great addition.
