palmatum 'Beni otake'
The name translates to red
bamboo, which aptly describes this maple from the linearilobum group. The
leaves are a little wider and sturdier than other linearilobum maples. Foliage
emerges medium red in spring holding its color well into summer before first
bronzing and then turning green. In late summer new red growth pushes out of
the top of the tree that is now green, giving it a very interesting appearance.
Fall color is a really nice crimson. Growing faster than most linearilobum
types, ‘Beni otake’ becomes a beautiful vase
shaped tree eventually becoming slightly more round topped with age. The
distinctive look and it's ability to tolerate full sun even in warmer climates
make 'Beni otake' a perennial
