Japanese maples will grow in your area, but need some shade to do well. Morning sun and afternoon shade is best. For best results choose a type with larger leaves with broad points, rather than one with extremely finely cut, or threadlike leaves. Give it a soil enriched with plenty of compost and good drainage. Keep it on the moist side especially during the establishment year.
