Acer palmatum 'Sango kaku'
Coral Bark Sango kaku Japanese Maple

Zones 6-9

‘Sango kaku’ is a beautiful large coral bark Japanese maple. This Japanese maple tree has a spectacular bright red bark that stands out in any time of the year! The leaf of 'Sango kaku' in the early spring is a vibrant lush green and new growth often has light flushing of red on the edging. The fall color of ‘Sango kaku’ is a beautiful bright gold-yellow with hints of red splashed in. The golden-yellow contrast magnificently with the coral bark. ‘Sango kaku’ grows best in sun to filtered light. Heavy shade tends to wash out the bark color on some coral barks. ‘Sango kaku’ can reach up to 20-25 ft over time.

It may surprise you to find out that we enjoy ‘Sango kaku’ the most after the leaves had dropped. The cool temperatures brighten the coral bark Japanese maple as it adds amazing color even late in winter after all the other garden colors are gone. The bright warm colors of the red bark stand out so nicely accompanied by snowfall and this is one of our personal favorite times to view the beauty of ‘Sango kaku’. This amazing coral bark Japanese maple tree is sure to add year-round color to your garden and become one of favorites to photograph in any season.


Limited Quantities Available !! As we have over a thousand cultivars of Japanese maples, we often do not have many of each cultivar. We recommend that you buy the Japanese maples you want immediately as we often sell out of certain selections.

Bought a one gallon size tree. Great price great plant. It’s growing so fast in a week. Thank you. Very happy with my tree.

Great value!

I ordered this 1 gallon Sango Kaku from Mr. Maple and a 3 gallon Sango Kaku from another site. I ordered the 3 gallon thinking it would be much larger because it cost 3x more. WRONG! The "3g" tree from the other store is actually smaller in every way from root mass to trunk thickness to height. I will only order from Mr. Maple in the future. In the photo you can see the Mr. Maple tree towers over the tree from the "Center".


Great experience. Trees ordered were beautiful and healthy!


Far exceeded expectations. Thank you
