Acer palmatum 'Winter Red'
Acer palmatum ‘Winter Red’ is a wonderful coral bark Japanese maple with bright red bark especially in the winter. The leaves emerge light green in the spring and contrast very well off the bright red bark. The leaves darken and the bark lightens as summer arrives. In fall, the leaves of ‘Winter Red’ become a bright, golden yellow that really stand out in the landscape. ‘Winter Red’ does not grow nearly as large as similar coral barks like ‘Sango Kaku’ or ‘Beni kawa’, making it an excellent coral bark for nearly any location.
