Amur Maple is closely related to Tatarian Maple, Amur maple has glossy foliage and Tatarian maple don’t.  Very hardy shrub or small tree.  Best grow in full sun location for brilliant red fall colour.  It has many small flowers in spring.  With smaller leaves, it is excellent for bonsai use.  USDA Zones:4-10.  Mature size:18′-20′(H) and (W).  Easy to propagate by  cuttings, graphting or by seeds.   Self seed easily.

茶條槭和韃靼槭的遺傳性狀非常相近,茶條槭的葉片有亮面,韃靼槭葉面則不光亮.  非常強健,耐寒也耐熱.    最好種在全日照處這樣秋色會比較紅.   春天開許多白色的小花.   因其葉片小故很適合做為盆栽.  地植的成熟株高為:18-20呎高或寬.    容易以扦插,嫁接或是種子來繁殖.  容易自行結子繁殖.


日本楓`紅皮Coral Bark Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum ‘Sango-kaku’)

2013-08-05 014 (Medium)

It gets more popular these years… I think it will replace ‘bloodgood’ soon. Love it!
Love its four season looks: spring the shoots with pink tone light or yellowish green leaves with coral stems. Summer is medium green or yellowish green leaves with coral bark stems. Fall colour is golen/orange beautiful colour with coral bark stems. Winter is coral bark stem stand out in white snow.

我很喜歡此日本楓品種’紅皮’. 在北美四季分明的氣候裡花園有它很吸引人的目光. 春季的新芽是帶有粉紅色的黃綠色葉片,夏天葉片是黃綠色的,秋色是黃橙色. 冬天時紅枝襯著白雪很美麗. 做成盆景會很美…
