Shin Deshojo Japanese Maple

Acer palmatum 'Shin Deshojo'

SKU
03182
A thrilling, densely-branched, small tree with highly dramatic foliage color. Spring leaves are brilliant salmon-red, green in midsummer, then turn a brilliant orange-scarlet in autumn. New growth continues to emerge red, contrasting beautifully with the mature foliage. The diminutive size fits well in small spaces and containers. Deciduous.
