Acer palmatum 'Sango kaku'
The famous Coral Bark Maple, ‘Sango Kaku’ has bright salmon coral colored bark in winter. The foliage is lime green in spring darkening as summer temperatures warm and usually yellow or yellow mixed with orange in fall. It is very important to site this tree properly, the more sun in winter the better the bark color. In hotter climates if you can give it some afternoon shade in summer the foliage will remain pretty all summer long.
