A well known selection of Japanese Maple that is a vigorous grower into a tree of perhaps 20 feet, Acer palmatum Osakazuki is green throughout the season until fall when it turns a brilliant crimson. Reputed to not scorch in sun, we have found it is happiest in the South in bright but filtered light. Like most Japanese maples, it is quite tough once established. These are grafted plants. They are available only at the nursery. They are far too large to ship at 12 years of age. Deciduous. Zones 6 - 8.
