Described as a cross between ‘shin deshoji’ and ‘beni fushigi’ varieties, the Acer palmatum Pheonix has bright pink-red leafs with yellow veins. As spring turns to summer the yellow tones replace the pink and the veins turn greener in colour. In Autumn the leaves turn from bright orange to red, before falling off. Acer palmatum Pheonix grows into a compact shrub, with the potential to grow to 5m tall and 2.5m wide.
Thrives best in partial shade or full sun. Japanese maples do not like to be dry or waterlogged, they thrive best when the soil around is kept moist.
