Which plants are suitable for the sunniest and warmest parts of your garden? There are many garden plants that like a combination of sun and shade. But plants that endure in a location with really all-day sun: you need to pick those carefully. Especially if the plant is in a pot, the root system can get very hot in the sun. Few garden plants can withstand this. We list the three most beautiful and versatile options here.
The Japanese maple
The beautiful Japanese Maple is known for its unusual leaf shape and impressive colours. Several colours are available, with the red being by far the most commonly seen. These red varieties turn another shade darker red in autumn, when they are truly a sight to behold! And the great thing about this exotic-looking tree is that it grows native to our climate.
There are many varieties of Japanese maple available. So there is always one suitable for your garden or even balcony. There are species that can be kept as shrubs and those that grow up to 10 metres tall! Most species will do fine in full sun. In fact, a Japanese maple needs a lot of sunlight to keep its red colours. If the plant gets too little sun, the colours will fade.
