Acer palmatum 'Sango-kaku', also known as Coral-bark Maple is one of the most popular Japanese Maples with year-round interest and deep coral-coloured stems. It features yellow/orange and sometimes slightly pink-hued, deeply-lobed foliage in the spring followed by lush green leaves in the summer. The autumn sees the foliage turn to a soft, golden-yellow with hints of red and orange.
Japanese Maple 'Sango-kaku' is a stunning ornamental tree for all seasons; even in winter its bark is a deep orangey-red, coral-like colour, bringing much needed warmth into the winter garden. A larger variety of Japanese Maple, it will grow to a good height and spread but can be enjoyed as a container grown ornamental shrub or tree for many years due to its slow growth rate.
Ideal for small gardens, courtyard gardens, rock gardens and patios. Suitable for any gardener, experienced or novice as it is easy to grow and low maintenance, needing watering only in hotter summer months.
Acer palmatum 'Sango-kaku' prefers semi-shaded conditions to develop good leaf colour but can tolerate sun to a degree. However ensure it is not exposed to sun in the hotter part of the day as leaf scorch may occur. Plant in moist, well-drained soil and in a sheltered position.
