Acer palmatum Shishio Improved
What a delightful Japanese Maple! The spring leaves burst forth a pink/red and is brilliant, lighting up the that darker corner. As the season progresses the leaves shift to being more red, then eventually, by mid summer, turn green. The fall color is a blazing red-orange. The tree will grow to 8 to 10 feet tall in 10 years. This cultivar does well in containers or in the ground, either way it is a winner, and one of the best for the colors. Used for bonsai often.
