Acer Palmatum - 'Shin Deshojo'

'Shin' means "new" indicating that this cultivar is a later improved selection of the well known 'Deshojo'. In the spring 'Shin Deshojo' has arguably the brightest, most brilliant foliage of any of the more than 400 Japanese maple cultivars. Some refer to the leaf color as "fire-engine red". Flaming scarlet or crimson scarlet is a better description. The new foliage on this gorgeous tree/shrub retains its bright scarlet color during the first month or more during spring. As mid-summer arrives the color changes to an attractive red-green. In the fall, the colors become blends of reds and oranges. The young shoots are a reddish brown to dark purple-red. This maple is not a tall tree/shrub. It grows to 7-10 feet tall by 6 feet wide in 10-15 years. 'Shin Deshojo' is an excellent container plant for patio display. Pacific Coast Maples specializes in what we consider as the top 25 Japanese maples in the world. This tremendous cultivar is listed in our top five choices. 'Shin Deshojo' is truly spectacular.
