Acer palmatum 'Beni hagoromo'

The 'Beni hagoromo' is a newly introduced tree from Japan. In early spring, it produces bright red sessilifolium leaves that are heavily divided, giving the appearance of a red feather and lending the tree a graceful look. The leaf color deepens to a maroon shade by mid-spring, which is the basis for its name, as 'Beni' translates to red, making this tree the red version of the 'Hagoromo' cultivar. During summer, the tree's heat tolerance makes it turn green with red highlights. In the fall, 'Beni hagoromo' transforms into a bright scarlet red. It grows up to 15 ft in 20 years, with a vase-like shape, and thrives in Zones 5 through 9.
