Coral Bark Japanese Maple
Acer palmatum 'Sango kaku'
The Coral Bark Japanese Maple is one of the most striking trees in the cultivated landscape.
It achieves its best color in full sun, but doesn't mind some shade.
In spring, its 7-lobed, narrowly pointed, pale-green leaves emerge with contrasting red edges from red stems. In fall, the leaves turn a golden yellow. After they drop, the coral-red bark of this aptly named ornamental tree intensifies, creating an outstanding winter effect.
