Description

Sango Kaku Coral-twig Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum 'Sango Kaku') is a small tree with gracefully branched stems and palmate reddish-green leaves that turn bright red in the fall. Sango Kaku has amazing winter twig color that is a bright coral-red-orange color. Used in Kansas landscapes small lawn tree or understory tree in full to part shade needing rich, moist soils. Even with ideal growing conditions, growth is slow. Avoid afternoon sun in the heat of summer as leaf tips will burn. I have seen tremendous late spring freeze damage on rare occasions so cover if growth has started if the forcast calls for 28 degrees F or lower.
