Introducing the Acer palmatum ssp. amoenum 'Shojo' Shojo Japanese Maple - a stunning deep colored palmatum tree that almost qualifies as a "black-red." As fall sets in, crimson tones dominate, providing an engaging contrast to the dark foliage. This exquisite tree's growth is upright and vigorous when young, branching laterally to become a tall, wide tree, at least 3 meters in height at maturity. 'Shojo' gets its name from a red-faced orangutang featured in many Japanese dramas. While the trueness to type can never be guaranteed from seed collected from cultivars, Vertrees describes the parent as a very deep colored palmatum with foliage that becomes deep purple-red. If given afternoon shade, the color holds well into late summer, and in autumn, the unmistakable crimson tones of 'Shojo' dominate the scene. Add this beautiful tree to your garden to enjoy its gorgeous colors and unique character. Order now to experience the breathtaking beauty of the Acer palmatum ssp. amoenum 'Shojo' Shojo Japanese Maple.
