Sango Kaku Japanese Maple is best known for its bright red stems, and its small size. The Sango Kaku Maple is an absolute showpiece in a small, partly shaded yard. The small leaves emerge pinkish yellow in the spring, mature to a lime green, then produce yellow orange fall color.
All winter red bark makes a strong statement in the garden and is a nice contrast to the leaves year-round. Sango Kaku is slow growing, and tops out around 20‘ high, and 15-20’ wide, but smaller when kept in a pot. Like all Japanese Maples it prefers shade in the hot afternoon sun. Japanese maples like our cool, wet mild climate.
Sango Kaku look fantastic with a low growing grass or ground cover like Japanese forest grass,
Sarcococca, or colorful Heuchera.
