Acer palmatum 'Aka Ne'

Acer palmatum 'Aka Ne' has some of the most stunning spring time leaves. New foliage glows with amazing hues of yellow and orange with red ridges. 'Aka Ne' translated from Japanese means 'Red Ridges'. Leaves transform to a yellow green into summer and then unleash bright oranges in the fall. A small, compact deciduous tree that can reach 6' tall x 4' wide in 10 years. Gorgeous spring time color, this maple does not disappoint. Most definitely a 'wow' factor plant. It's small size makes it ideal for a container or a smaller garden.

Acer palmatum 'Aka Ne' was originally introduced by Tsukasa Nursery in Japan in 1984. In the nursery trade, this plant may also be labelled as 'Akane'.
