 dining room bed...

One key plant in this bed was a Japanese maple at the northeast corner of the house. It started as an A. p. 'Aka Shigitatsu Sawa' I tried to train as a weeper. That failed, and I moved it out and put in A. p. 'Corallinum'. Seeing that would also outgrow its space, I moved it out and put in A. p. 'Tsuma Beni' on a raised berm to give it more stature.

I added a dwarf purple weeping beech in 2003. A few years later A. p. 'Tsuma Beni' outgrew its space and was removed from from the bed and put across the path. The beech was joined (and almost overwhelmed) by an Edgeworthia chrysantha in 2010.
