Japanese Maple - 'Sango Kaku'
The 'Sango Kaku' is a variety of Japanese maple that makes a bold statement. The feature that makes it so unique is the bright, almost florescent colors of its bark and leaves. The bark is a bright coral color that makes a striking contrast in the winter. The leaves start out bright green with a strong reddish tint that fades out as the leaves mature finally changing to a yellow-golden color in the fall. The 'Sango Kaku' stands out in all seasons and can be a beautiful focal point in a landscape.
