Maple - Japanese Sango Kaku #5 Pot
Sango-kaku, also known as the coral bark Japanese maple, is a deciduous, small to medium-sized tree. Noted for its showy coral bark and fall color, that is particularly showy in the fall and winter after the leaves drop, the award-winning Acer palmatum Sango-kaku is a must for those who appreciate winter bark interest. This maple tree features an upright, vase-shaped habit and makes an outstanding four-season tree that is enjoyed by all gardeners as it graces the landscape. Coral bark Japanese maple is a slow- to moderate-growing woody tree. Plant it in full sun to partial shade and in moist, well-drained soil. It tolerates a range of soil types including sand and heavy clay. The foliage will retain a light green-yellow color through spring and summer, and in fall it will turn bright yellow. The color intensifies in cold weather to almost salmon, and although it produces its best color in full sun, new foliage may scorch. This cultivar is drought tolerant.
Plant it in a garden that needs winter interest to really showcase its red bark or plant it in a small space, courtyard, patio, or Asian garden.
