Japanese Maple, Osakazuki
Since the mid 1800’s the Osakazuki has been a renowned cultivar of the Japanese maple. Sporting stiff, tough green leaves in the spring and summer, turning a robust burning crimson in the fall, this is one of the few Japanese maples that can take full sun without burning its leaves. During its time with beautiful green leaves, its samaras hang beneath its foliage in bright red wings. The contrast provides striking beauty that will delight through the season. Growing to a height of 14 to 16 feet in 10 years, this traditional, upright cultivar will not disappoint.
