Formerly known as A. palmatum 'Senkaki'. This Japanese maple is attractive in all seasons: in spring the leaves are a lively pinkish green, turning a rich green in summer and then canary yellow with orange highlights in autumn. It is also a fine winter feature, with the bark on all its younger shoots and branches a conspicuous coral red. It requires sun to modest shade, in moist, well-drained soil. It tolerates a range of soils, including sand and heavy clay, and it is drought-tolerant. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the prestigious Award of Garden Merit.

This is a tree that has everything - I would certainly recommend it to someone looking for a small tree. As mentioned above, it gives you something throughout all of the seasons especially during the autumn months when the leaves turn a lovely buttery yellow. And then it's not finished, because the stems perform all winter with their coral red show - superb! It seems to be of sturdy constitution as I moved it during the growing season from my back to the front garden and it survived .
