Akane is a wonderful, showy palmatum that emerges with bright gold and orange leaves in the spring with deep salmon-pink margins. The beautiful spring color of Akane lasts for over a month, with the leaves turning to a chartreuse green in the spring and summer. “Akane” means “deep red” in Japanese and is associated with the glowing evening sky, as is reflected by the spring foliage. Fall color shows more oranges and yellows. This tree is a compact semi-dwarf that reaches about 9 feet high and 5 feet wide at maturity.
