OR check the box below for ServeScape to provide offloading equipment for an additional fee.

Coral Bark Japanese Maple is a beautiful small deciduous tree with an airy rounded crown and brilliant red-coral bark on its young branches and a soft grey trunk.  The deeply cut palmate leaves emerge coral pink and matures to lime-green with red margins before turning vibrant golden yellow in fall. Small non-showy but umbels of red flowers bloom in spring followed by samaras.  Grows best in rich, moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Prefers full sun in cooler climates, but needs afternoon shade in southern areas.
