Acer palmatum 'Beni maiko' a medium sized shrub-like japanese maple with brilliant scarlet new leaves in spring. In Japanese it's name translates to 'red haired dancing girl' which rather wonderfully descibes it on a sunny spring day with its wonderful, graceful branches. During summer the colours change from dark reds to bluish greens, turning a fantastic bright red in the autumn.
Very similar to the well known variety 'Shindeshojo' but with perhaps more summer colour.
It's compact, slightly weeping habit makes it suitable in both small and large garden where it will also grow well in a container.
