    Yes, it has a small white bloom similar to epimedium.

    D D, That is not true. I grew up in SE Alabama and it's the reason I stay in Western WA and only go home to visit. I hated growing up where I always had to watch where I put my feet. And if you have a true phobia of snakes you do NOT ever get used to seeing snakes whether poisonous or not.

    True phobias are a whole different thing. sfitz1000 makes a good point, take away their food source.

    Love the flagstone. Could you tell me what the name is and where you ordered it from?

    Thanks! Its been about a decade since that was installed so I do not remember the name of the stone. I believe it came from Vern's Topsoil in Pouslbo, WA.

    Do you know if it would grow in Menifee, CA? It's just gorgeous! It would have to be in full sun.

    Hi Suzette - its always best to consult your local nursery - while they are fine in full sun here, we get a lot of winter rain.

    Hi sig123 - Japanese lilac or Syringa reticulata is not a plant that I use. A quick online shows its suitable for USDA zone 7-3, and Toronto is USDA Zone 5. Canadian agricultural zoning may be different, so you would want to look into that. However, cold hardiness is only one cultural consideration regarding plant suitability for any given site. The best advice I can offer is for you to talk to a local nursery, landscaper or designer.

    Hi there - it does look like little duck feet! This is a Pac NW native plant - Vancouveria hexandra or inside out flower. Super cute. Likes shady, moist areas. Does kind of feel like an epimedium....

Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to 11 Japanese Maples for Breathtaking Color and FormMay 30, 2014

Other Japanese maples, such as the red-leafed ‘Bloodgood’, Emperor 1 and coral bark maple (Acer palmatum ‘Sango Kaku’), have an upright growth pattern and typically reach 15 to 25 feet in height. Not all Japanese maples are created equal. My experience has shown that many people purchase upright varieties with the misconception that they will stay under 8 feet in height. A bit of research on the front end will spare you future disappointment.

Therese Ciesinski added this to 6 Trees You'll Fall ForSep 22, 2013

Perhaps the ultimate specimen tree, Japanese maples (Acer palmatum) come in an almost bewildering array of shapes, sizes and leaf colors. They are elegantly beautiful in every season, in leaf or bare-branched. Japanese maples are hardy in zones 6 (-10°F) to 8 (10°F) and need both sun and shade. Too much sun and their leaves can burn at the tips.
