The famous Coral Bark Maple is aptly named sporting intense coral-red bark all winter long. Habit is upright but very bushy never reaching shade tree proportions. Spring-summer color is bright green changing to neon yellow in fall, which contrasts well with the red stems. Does well in container culture or the landscape.

The bright red bark does fade as the stems age. Regular pruning will encourage the bright red new stems.
