I have heard this is a nice tree for the landscape.
Please tell me and us what your experience has been with this maple. Is it hardy to z 5? What about roots---shouldn't plant hostas nearby? Tolerant of wet conditions?
Is there a reliable source on the 'net where one could order it?Is it best to plant only B&B stock? Does it vary considerably in appearance?
Dirr says, " [I]t has few peers ..." in the winter landscape. Do you agree?
I am in zone 5.
