I think this is the cutest off all maples. Short, star-shaped tiny red leaves are clustered on short branches. Twigs are very thin. Not a fast growing maple. In spring, the tiny leaves emerge pink to rusty red. In late summer, the red leaves tend to have a green hue to the center. Vibrant red fall color. Since growth is so fine, it can be damaged very easily to spring fungi or early frost. The same thing can happen in early fall. Make sure the maple is planted in an area that has good air circulation and full sun. Full sun will also intensify the color of the leaves. Keep out of shade since it will grow very weak. Beni Hime needs plenty of light in a well-drained area. In 8-10 yrs it will grow 3 ft. Great for container planting. Zone 5 winter protection. Since the new growth is fine and twiggy, I can only graft this every other year. Quantities are limited.
