    I've had this tree growing in my back yard, in full sun,for 10 yrs, and I would differ on the hardiness zone. As a horticulturist, I would give it a Zone 4 rating. It has withstood -30F with no die back.

SHANTUNG MAPLE Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips

Japanese Maples are moderately easy to grow and adapt to most conditions; however, they do prefer to be planted in an area that is well protected from wind, heat exposure, and drought like conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer.
