Native to Japan, Korea and China, Japanese Maples (Acer palmatum) include a rich variety of deciduous shrubs or small trees with graceful habits, elegantly cut leaves and extraordinarily colorful foliage, particularly in spring or fall when the leaves warm up to dazzling shades of golden-yellow, red-purple and bronze, before shedding to the ground. As they fall, they expose the bright, coral red bark on young twigs and branches of some Japanese Maple cultivars, adding a much needed splash of color in the winter landscape.
Belonging to the 'Coral Bark group', these Japanese Maples are all outstanding four-season trees that are treasured by all gardeners as they grace the landscape. A must for those who appreciate winter bark interest!
