Fast growing maple cultivar with a distinctive coral red trunk that may reach impressive heights and thus needs yearly pruning to maintain a particular shape. This versatile plant can adapt itself to limited spaces as well, but expresses all its beauty and visor best in more open spaces, though it may prove invasive with regards to other plants placed too close. Prefers sunny or semi-shaded exposure.
This cultivar is characterized by small bright green leaves with a reddish shade on the outermost points. The new leaves show a light yellow orange color which it retains until august at which point more yellow-red colors appear. The palmate, well defined leaves are of a restrained size and tends to be carried upright.
To facilitate root growth this cultivar prefers soft, moist and well-drained terrain. Ensure enough water is present in the summer months to prevent desiccating leaves Frequent flooding, however, especially in heavier terrain unsuited to this plant, is to be avoided as it can lead to fungus and necrosis.
Taking care of these plants is the only way to enjoy their beauty and elegance for a long time. Verify the need for an annual disinfestation to be carried out in the spring period (March-April), perform two annual fertilizations in spring and autumn, and perform a pruning in the autumn period (September-October)
