Acer palmatum ‘Kurenai jishi’ Japanese Maple



Kurenai jishi is one of the most desirable of all the dwarf maples: it is like a red Shishigashira! In spring, the deep red, crinkled leaves have their most vibrant color, later becoming a more burgundy and purple color in the heat of summer. Kurenai jishi’s compact growth habit and beautiful structure make it very attractive, and the orange fall display is especially spectacular.
