PALMATUM, green. Syn. 'Saku' As this upright tree matures, it will take on a layered effect branching horizontally outward at different levels. The foliage at first is light green with distinctive red tips, eventually turning to rich forest green. The lobes of the leaves are quite long with nearly parallel sides. In the fall, the tree changes to multiple colors of warm yellow, glowing orange, and red.

Eventually horizontal branches ; leaves held on a horizontal plane give this upright 8-12' tree a lovely layered look; its 7-lobed leaves are tipped with purple in spring ; rich yellow-orange tinted red in fall. Sun-PSh/Med
