If you’re in need of a tree that does it all, the Coral Bark Japanese Maple will suit your needs!
Even in the Winter this tree stands out from the rest. The striking red bark makes a statement in an otherwise boring winter landscape. Its foliage is mostly green with reddish-pink tinges of color at first, then turning into medium green for the summer season and finally taking on autumn-like hues of fiery red, bright yellow and rusty orange in late summer. A must have for any garden!
This compact version fits anywhere! It grows to approximately 15-25 feet tall with a smaller width. Plant it as an accent tree along your foundation, or even put it in a container and grow it on your patio.
‘Sango Kaku’ loves sun to part shade, prefers moist well-drained soil, and is heat tolerant. Coral Bark Japanese Maples are hardy in zones 5-8.
This tree makes a wonderful focal point, can be planted in groups and is great near porches, entryways, and decks. The dazzling display of seasonal colors is well worth it the wait.
