PALMATUM, red. What a lovely little cultivar for containers and small landscapes! The color variations are remarkable, ranging from yellow-red or peach to pink with green tones. Better yet, in summer, the foliage darkens and leaves take on some variegation. A slender, densely branched, willowy, small tree.

Beni tsukasa is a variegated upright with brilliant salmon-orange color in spring. This color fades to yellow and then to a green mottled with gold in the summer. Beni tsukasa is somewhat slower growing than Beni maiko or Shindeshojo, but remains very distinctive in spring time. It forms a plant as wide as it is tall, maturing at approximately 14’.

A slow growing (to 10') shrub, its charm lies in the leaf color which this photo captures well. Later in the summer, the leaves become more green, but they are always attractive. zone 6
