One of our favorites out of all the maples, Shindeshojo is a medium sized maple to 8 -10 feet. This Acer palamtum cultivar has the most brilliant red spring color of all maples! Place Shindeshojo next to a green maple and it is a total knockout! New growth on Shindeshojo is flaming scarlet or fire-engine red that holds for several months, gradually changing through mottled red to green in summer. A very nice classy maple. Full size will be about 8′ H by 10′ wide. Autumn colors are shades of orange and red. Hardy. Shindeshojo is very similar to Chisio improved.
