Red Pygmy Maple
I recently purchased a Red Pygmy Maple and was planning on putting it in my new flowerbed in the lower East part of my yard. When the tree was delivered (UPS), it was in horrible shape. The box was crushed, soil was spilled out of the small container and the tree was wilted and mostly brown. Happy to say it is doing great now but I have some concerns because some websites say they tolerate sun well (which is what it will be getting) and others say it needs afternoon shade. So, my question is, when I plant it this fall will the sunny spot be ok? I don't want to kill it! Anyone have suggestions??
