Acer palmatum 'Beni-maiko'
Japanese maple 'Beni-maiko'
- available to order from late spring
- 3 litre pot
This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.
The deeply lobed foliage of this relatively compact form, emerge in spring in a bright, pinkish red flush. As it ages, the fiery colours become more subdued as the foliage becomes greener - and this green is then held throughout the summer. In autumn, the foliage once again starts to change colour, this time developing rich orange and red tones before being shed. Great in a pot on the patio, it's an outstanding addition to smaller gardens.
