(Revised 17 Dec 2013)
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.
