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.

This is one of the trees in the corallinum group as you can tell by the spring leaf coloring. This tree is more likely to 'tree up' than many of the others, by which I mean that it will get some height (12') and look more like a tree than a bush. zone 5.

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
