Acer palmatum 'Shojo nomura'
from $35.00
'Shojo nomura' means "beautiful red faced monkey" and this vivid image seems to fit this wonderful small tree. Decidedly upright, 'Shojo nomura' emerges dark purple almost black in early spring but later growth is decidely red and seems to be more red than purple most of the season. It holds its color in our gardens as long as any upright palmatum we grow and if it does fade to green in very hot years it never bronzes out like other red cultivars. Also it seems to hold it's color better in shade than most varieties. Brilliant effects can be obtained by planting this tree where its translucent leaves can be back lit by the morning or evening sun. Fall color is red and usually outstanding.10 Year Size: Height:  16-18 feet    Width:  6-8 feetSpring Color: BurgundySummer Color: CopperFall Color: RedSun Tolerance: FullPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil

Acer palmatum 'Winter Flame'
from $35.00
Very similar to 'Sango kaku' but smaller, 'Winter Flame' can vary greatly under different growing conditions. If stressed this little guy hardly grows at all and can be a little finicky. If happy in its environment it can actually grow fairly quick although still a good bit slower than 'Sango kaku'. We find that giving it well drained soil and adequate moisture is the key to happiness for this little maple. Spring color is lime green becoming darker in summer and then yellow to orange and yellow in fall. Under the right conditions 'Winter Flame' may have the most intense winter bark color of all the coral bark maples.10 Year Size:  Height: 6-8 Feet   Width: 4-6 FeetSpring Color: GreenSummer Color: GreenFall Color: YellowSun Tolerance: PartialPlanting: Elevated, Well Drained Soil
