Acer Sango Kaku


Acer Sango Kaku

Soon the golden leaves will fall, revealing coral/red stems for the winter, which look good against my pale wall.

Lovely and bushy, too, whereas my 'coral bark' maple is skinny . . . maybe some judicious pruning is needed?!

This one was so spindly and scraggy last year Sheila, but this year it has really gone crazy and I'm thrilled with it. I only prune it very lightly every spring to take off the dead twigs. :) I would guess you might improve it by giving it a bit more shelter from the wind...if indeed it is exposed to any!

Thanks Karen - it's actually in quite a sheltered spot (in a pot), so I'm not sure why it's become etiolated. I'll take encouragement from yours!

That looks a very happy plant Karen.
