In the shady space I have now planted Acer negundo 'Flamingo', which is a small variegated bush and it seems very happy so far. You are right that Acer Palmatum does not like full sun and can also get damaged by wind. They are quite slow growing, but in a pot I think they may need some extra root protection in the winter. I did lose one Japanese Maple which was in a pot, but the replacement has withstood very low temperatures (even minus 15C) in the ground.
