Acer 'Beni-Hagoromo' is a unique and stunning variety of Japanese Maple. Every Spring, the new foliage emerges as a beautiful crimson red. As the seasons progress, the leaves turn gorgeous shades of browny purple with hints of red too. Each leaf is distinctively shaped and attached to the stem directly creating the effect that this plant is covered in red feathers.

In Japanese maples, the word "Beni" in the name means "red", hence, this one translates as Red Japanese Angel's Robe! The new growth emerges deep glossy red before it transitions to shades of purple. As with all purple acers, light levels heavily influence foliage colour, this can be seen even through the same plant and offers a wonderful effect with this one, with brighter red more evident in the outer leaves, greening as they become shaded within the framework of the plant. Beni-Hagoromo has a particularly upright growth habit, reaching around 2-3 metres tall and around a metre wide - so great to use for filling a narrower space.

Supplied in approx 5 litre containers.
