'Beni kawa' is a better, more compact version of Sango kaku. This vase-shaped tree leafs out two weeks later than Sango kaku. Its fresh green leaves change to yellow and orange in fall. The name means "red bark" which makes it a perfect winter focal point. This tree can reach 15 feet in 10 years and can take full sun well.

Info

PALMATUM, green. "Sensational" describes this terrific maple! The new bark is coral to salmon-red adding interest to the winter landscape. This artistic cultivar is full and twiggy, and with its bright branches, will be seen from a great distance, allowing this tree to be effectively used to draw the eye to a desired area. Summer dresses the tree in dense foliage of true green, sometimes lightly edged with red tints. Along with this, the bark changes to a yellowish color.
