日本楓’紅皮’Coral Bark Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum ‘Sango-kaku’)
The beautiful winter looks…white snow on red branches! 這樹的白雪染紅枝冬景.
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…
