Acer palmatum 'Sango kaku'
Highly regarded for its outstanding, almost fluorescent coral bark, this upright, spreading Japanese maple produces a fabulous show all four seasons. Red margins decorate the yellow-green spring leaves that gradually change to bright green in summer. Yellow-gold and apricot shades produce a striking fall show. The bark, with colors that intensify as winter approaches, brightens up gray days and glows against snow. Youngest wood bears the strongest color. 'Sango kaku' means "coral tower."
