PALMATUM, green. "Sensational" describes this terrific maple! The new bark is coral to salmon-red adding interest to the winter landscape. This artistic cultivar is full and twiggy, and with its bright branches, will be seen from a great distance, allowing this tree to be effectively used to draw the eye to a desired area. Summer dresses the tree in dense foliage of true green, sometimes lightly edged with red tints. Along with this, the bark changes to a yellowish color.

Beni Kawa is a plant with beautiful red winter bark. It is more round-headed than Sango kaku’s vase shape. The winter bark is more of a true red when compared to the Sango kaku’s coral bark. The choice between the two varieties is best judged by the shape desired in the landscape. (Red skin or red river)

A "new" ; even better?! coral-bark, this small (to 10') spreading tree has small leaves of a soft green... until they turn bright gold in fall; its bark darkens in winter to an intense coral-red: pretty all year. Sun-PSh/Med

With red bark in winter, this cultivar is very much like 'Sango Kaku', but it is somewhat more vase-shaped.
