This small ornate Japanese Maple has the amazing characteristic of changing colors, it seems almost daily! Delicate Threadleaf leaves start out a deep red, disctintively different then most red Japanese Maples. As the weathers starts to warm most of the leaf turns green with a narrow boarder of red, giving the over all tree appear almost orange. Once the summer heat sets in the red border fades and green takes over until the fall when the cold weather transitions the fine foliage to yellow, orange and red! Afternoon shade in the hottest climates helps protect the fine foliage. Deer resistant.
