Acer palmatum ‘Otome Zakura’
(Revised 23 Nov 2017)
This maple has beautiful pinkish red leaves in spring. Its spring foliage appears to be similar to ‘Shin deshojo’ but less red and more pink. I was warned that it is not reliably hardy to my area. I suspect that the brightness of the pink colour may depend on the spring temperature; the warmer the temperature, the less bright pink it will be.
