PALMATUM, red. The name means "a red-haired dancing girl," an apt description for this fine cultivar as it sways in a gentle breeze. The leaves are small, brilliant scarlet and irregular in shape. At maturity they fade into pinkish red with an undertone of green to blue-green. A dense, dwarf tree, with a shrubby habit that grows wider than tall.

Beni maiko is a variegated upright with brilliant salmon pink spring growth that makes it a showstopper. It fades to a mottled green in summer. It has excellent bright red fall color. It is similar to Shindeshojo or Otome zakura in appearance, but is a stronger grower. Beni maiko will grow to be as wide as it is tall to about 14’. (Red dancing girl)

One of the several cultivars in the Corallinum group, its outstanding feature is the brilliant coral color of the new leaves. It is a dense shrub, as wide as tall with thin twigs. zone 6
