If you need a brilliant accent in your landscape, you need a Coral Bark Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum ‘Sango Kaku’). You’ll love it every time you step into your yard.
Who doesnt love Japanese Maple trees? This is an incredible variety with beautifully ornamental features. A small tree, Coral Bark Japanese Maple offers an outstanding display and so much character.
It just takes one glance to understand how the Coral Bark Japanese Maple earned its name. Also known as the Sango Kaku Japanese Maple, it’s widely admired for its bright red bark. The intense reds turn up the volume to a fiery pitch as the temperatures plummet for the winter months.
The winter bark of the younger thinner branches exhibits an electric, fluorescent, coral color. It might literally knock your socks off!
This red character comes from showy red sap flowing inside the tree, which gives that amazing color of the bright red bark. The sap also displays on the elegant foliage in spring and summer.
Lovely grass green leaves are dissected with seven deep palmate lobes. As you might imagine, the color almost glows against the red bark, and the characteristic sap displays as a reddish margin through spring and summer.
Strikingly intricate leaves provide a lovely, dappled shade. But this four-season stunner features vibrant hues all year. In fall, the leaves turn a beautifully luminous, rich golden-orange.
Its in winter when its leaves fall away in winter, that this tree truly shines. You’ll never tire of admiring the crimson branches of the winter bark.
This impressive tree attracts a lot of attention but is easy-care when given the right growing conditions. This graceful maple will delight you season after season, year after year.

#ProPlantTips for CarePlant Coral Bark Japanese Maple in partial sun to full sun. It performs best in moist, slightly acidic, mulched, well-drained soil.
Coral Bark Maple appreciates some shade from the hot afternoon sun in warmer climates. Give it a protected site out of the worst of the wind in colder climates if you can.
Give Coral Bark Maple a moderate amount of regular water. Make sure you include a thick mulch over the top of the roots to help keep the roots evenly moist and a bit cooler. As with all plants, pull back the mulch from around the trunk of the tree by an inch or two.
Prune late winter when dormant, before it begins to grow for the season. Like most woody plants, its a good idea to thin out the inside of the canopy for better sunlight and air circulation.
Study the tree before you start. Decide which branches youll keep, in order to give it a bit of character. Maybe you will like keeping the lowest branches on the tree, so don’t be in a hurry to remove them. Take your time when pruning!

Single Stem, Multi Stem, Shrub Form, Oh My!Before you buy, make sure you know what youre getting! Single stem, multi stem and shrub forms are different so read a bit about which were currently offering below.
Single Stem: These are plants that have one stem coming from the ground. Plants can also be considered single stem when lower branches are removed to raise the height of the branching. Sometimes, you will hear a single stem referred to as Tree Form.
Multi Stem:These are plants with 3, 4, and sometimes 5 or more stems planted together in the ground in close proximity to form a clump. There are times multi stems are formed by a tree that branches at the soil line with more than one main stem.
Shrub Form:These are bushy plants with many stems and branchings close to the ground. They are referred to as shrubs or bushes and are often shorter than their tree forms.
