2. Japanese mapleFor graceful form in a courtyard, balcony or large container, you can’t beat Japanese maples (Acer palmatum). Their delicate leaves come in many colours, as do their stems, so there’s plenty to enjoy even during winter.Shelter from wind is important for these deciduous trees and they’re not fond of very hot conditions.Use as a focal point, in pots or against a plain wall where their stunning foliage can be seen at its best.
