Japanese-style gardens are usually well-manicured and orderly. Some shrubs for you to consider for your garden include the traditional mosses, bamboo, hostas, irises, many types of ferns, and azaleas. Low-growing needled evergreens, such as dwarf Mugo pines, are also common in Japanese gardens. For colorful fruit, plant Aucuba japonica, and for an outstanding focal point, include a Laceleaf Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum 'Dissectum'), which grows naturally into a mound shape. With all the above suggestions, you'll have a lovely Japanese-style garden.
