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. Each of these plants will drawn attention to, and complement, your Japanese maple focal point. With all the above suggestions, you'll have a lovely Japanese-style garden.
