I know, they say it’s been overdone, but really, with fall color like this, who cares?
In our hot part of the world, most Japanese maples need to be grown in some shade.
This cultivar lights up the shade garden with beautiful fall foliage, lovely lime-green leaves in spring, and florescent pink bark in winter.
What more could you ask of a decorative, small tree?
So, my suggestion for the day is plant Acer palmatum ‘Sango-kaku.’ Why don’t you?
