PALMATUM, green. Syn. 'Chishio Improved'. Intensely pink spring growth shines on this twiggy, bushy maple. It sports small leaves and offers good green summer color. It develops firmer, stronger branches than 'Chishio' and has a more upright habit in the landscape. Excellent for containerized specimen.

A small-lvd cultivar with brilliant crimson-scarlet foliage in spring; its multi-branching, shrub-like habit ; small 2"leaves make it an ideal container or bonsai subject. PSh/Med
