The 'Sango Kaku' Japanese Maple has extraordinary pinkish-red bark in this vase-shaped tree, commonly called coral bark Japanese maple. This variety has particularly beautiful coral red bark in winter. Its radiant stem color intensifies with winter sunshine; in spring it grows pink new stems and pink-tipped yellow-green leaves. The bark and leaves recede to a subdued color in summer, and fall foliage is golden yellow with hints of orange, red and pink.

||20-25'H x 15-20'W
||Light Green tinged with Soft Pink turning Medium Green in summer
||Golden Yellow, Orange, Red and Pink
||Beautiful specimen tree for city, cottage or patio gardens
||Full sun/part shade. Does best in part shade in warmer climates. Important to think about light exposure: Too much light can damage delicate leaves. Too little light, and some of the more colorful varieties will take on an attractive greenish tone, but not the brilliant fall red/purple colors. For best color, most maples need a location with part day's sun or at least high light.
||Moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Prefers consistent moisture: Mulch will help retain moisture. Don't let soil dry out, nor become waterlogged.
