USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5a-9a  Find Your Zone

Special Attributes

'Beni Kawa' is a member of the Coral Bark family of Japanese Maples prized for its stems and branches that turn to a spectacular coral-red during fall, winter, and spring. New leaves emerge soft-green in spring, turning rich green for summer, and finally stunning bright yellow in fall. Its small to medium stature lends well for use in container plantings and for a focal specimen in smaller spaces.   




Landscape & Garden Uses

To showcase its magnificence and beauty, Beni Kawa Japanese Maple is best used in the landscape as a focal point specimen to draw attention to a specific area of the home or landscape. That being said, you can plant them in groupings of three or plant one on both sides of an entryway to accentuate the entrance. Excellent for use in larger containers. 

Spacing: At least 18'+ for space between trees

Container culture can extend the useful range of Japanese Maples. They are extremely easy to grow in containers, a practice taken to its most extreme form in the art of bonsai. 

Note:  One Japanese Maple can make a landscape...that is if you don't overcrowd it with other trees and plants. Therefore, when selecting companions to plant under or around your Japanese Maple, make sure to select low-growing shrubs or groundcover plants that won't interfere at all with your tree.

Most any average garden soil will grow Japanese Maples. They prefer a moist but well-drained soil rich in organic matter. As with so many other ornamental plants and trees, constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic. So make sure to plant your Japanese Maple in a well-drained site.
