Acer Sango Kaku Senkaki (Coral bark maple).
One of the best ornamental maple trees.
Brilliant new red stems that come to the forefront during winter but add interest throughout the year make the Coral Bark Maple of standouts from the many Japanese Maples.
Reaching a height of around 6m with a slightly narrower width to say 4.5m this is an upright tree that forms a naturally attractive vase shape. The botanical name is Acer palmatum ‘Senkaki’ also known as Acer palmatum Sango Kaku’.
Attractive foliage through the the spring and summer and lovely buttery orange autumn colours all add up to making this a year round attraction.
Foliage is bright green, five lobed with standout red stems. It is the bark of the tree that gives it its name, a really red coral reef tone that turns brown with age.
