How does A.p.'Deshojo' fare on a terrace

Comment from Jenny Feuerpeil

In forum: Acer palmatum 'Deshojo'

I once had A. palmatum 'Orange Dream' on our windy terrace (south-facing) and remember the leaves never looked happy. I am about to suggest this cultivar 'Deshojo' to a client, because he wants a Japanese maple in a container. The terrace is quite exposed, but west-facing and a lot less sunny than the spot I had for 'Orange Dream'. Any thoughts on this? How's your experience with this cultivar on a terrace?

It is approximately 4-5 meters in height and similar in spread with large leaves. It is said to be deciduous, having semi glossy leaves and multi-stem in nature.

Many thanks. Steve.

I am trying to figure out what this tree is and if I can prune it as it is starting to get brown.

Rhododendrons flowered and then petals all fell off

Question from angela

In forum: General

Hi, wondered anyone might know why this has happened please.

I bought two Rhododendrons last year and they flowered fine. This year however they flowered a couple of weeks ago and then within a week all the petals looked a bit sorry for themselves and all fell off. I have a North facing garden and they are against a wall. It has been windy weather for a while with rain but awful for them to only last a week.

Please can someone ID this perennial?

Question from Jo Newton

In forum: Identify a plant

I don't know what this perennial is. It looks to be quite vigorous; it's about 80cms high, has square stems and reddish leaves. No flowers yet. It also looks like it has some sort of wilting happening to it.
Thank you for your help.

I think it's a weed?

Question from RobM

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi, 18 months ago we decided to turn our 3 lawns in to meadows flowers with the help of our gardener and it was very successful (last year). However this year our garden is being over run by tall plants which don't seen to flower. We've tried identifying the plant but nothing quite matches. So we would appreciate any help in identifying it before it flowers in case it's bad, and any advice to remove it (we have 50 to 100 of these). Rob
