Japanese Garden Plants
One of the principle features of Japanese gardens are the plants of course. I have been training (to some degree) a number of plants in my garden for several years. These included three Scottish pines, a palmatum maple, a trident maple and an English beech. I also have purchased a several imported garden (patio) trees from Japan these include a white pine, standard wisteria and a taxus (yew).
I have several English woodland rhododendrons.

Another transplanted Japanese maple
The imported Japanese wisteria standard was bought from:
The beautiful 4ft patio white pine grown in a nursery near to Mount Fuji in Japan
The imported Taxus (yew)
Multiple dwarf azaleas that will be trained into clumps in coming years
The iris' (sibirica 'Baby Sister') potted up for use in the iris pond.
Phyllostachys vivax Aureocaulis bamboo in the teahouse garden
Note: I eventually dug this up as it sending out rampant roots!
Prunus pendula Pendula Rosea
Note: I eventually took this out as it grew just too big!
