texas wisteria

I HAVE TEXAS WISTERIA ON A FENCE AND WOULD LIKE TO ADD ADDITIONAL PLANTS, TEXAS WISTERIA WISTERIA FRUTESCENS (W. MACRESTACHYA). I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE A SELLER THAT CARRIES THIS PLANT IN THE DALLAS AREA.

DO YOU KNOW OF A SELLER IN THE DALLAS AREA OR ON LINE THAT CARRIES THIS VARIETY?

Japanese Maple in Full Shade

Will an Acer Palmatum Var. DIssectum thrive in full shade (north exposure shaded by house) in Plano, TX?

The above question is the same question, slightly reworded, as asked on March 16, 2015 (# 231350) but not answered.

Thank you

Acer Palmatum Var. Dissectum

The below questions were probably submitted by me in the wrong, though logical, sequence. The answer to the second question, regarding planting location and shade, is the most important to me as it is holding up the getting the tree into the ground. I suspect that it is the easier question for you to answer.

Thank you


I just purchased a Palmatum Var. Dissectum. I am now finding out that there are several varieties of Japanese Maples with that same name and that another word is needed for positive identification.
Hoping to identify it so as to be able to get more information on it's needs and habits.

Is there a chance that you can identify the tree (provide the missing word) or maybe narrow it down using the following information?

Size:: 6-10' tall x 6-10' wide
Habit: mounded
Color: Red
Leaf: Lace Leaf

Will it do OK in a north exposure in Plano, TX where it will only get shade?. Or should it be planted further from the front of the house, in a less preferred spot, where it will have a chance to find/grow into the sun (approx. 4:00PM) as did a juniper planted in a similar location?

FYI: An upright/larger Japanese red maple (not lace leaf) that was planted six feet from front of house in a similar north exposure (but close to northwest corner of house) is doing fine with minor leaf burn at times..

Thank you

Fred

Enteric TG Omega-3 vs. enteric coated

How do researchers know, and how does it work, that enteric TG Omega-3 dissolves in the small intestine instead of in the stomach? They say it is better absorbed this way, is this true? In your opinion, which one is the best to take that won't cost you an arm and a leg? They say 9 out of 10 over the counter vitamins lose 3/4 of their effectiveness by the time you buy them. Is this true?
