Acer palmatum 'Sango Kaku'

Sango Kaku’ means “coral tower” or “tower of sea coral,” a reference to the unusual pink hue of this maple’s bark. That color is most vivid in winter, but the cultivar has plenty more tints to flaunt during other seasons.

In spring, its emerging palmate and serrated yellow-green leaves often are outlined with red, to coordinate with the hue of its flower clusters . The foliage gradually transitions to light green over summer, but flames into red-tinged yellow-gold in autumn, accented by red samaras.

Fortunately, the tree doesn’t actually tower, growing instead into a vase shape about 25 feet tall and 20 feet wide in zones 5-8. That makes it fit easily into most landscapes where its kaleidoscope of changing colors should keep you tickled pink!

We ship two ways. One is "Local Delivery". That means one, or more, of our crew members personally delivers your order in a Bay Gardens truck or van to your home. This option is only available in certain zip codes throughout NY, NJ & CT.

The other method is "Common Carrier Shipping". Only certain plants can be sent this way. Usually ones that are under 4 feet tall. When we ship this way, one of our crew members boxes up your order and then sends it to your home via UPS or FedEx.

For more information on our shipping methods, browse our delivery pages in the "ABOUT" tab above.

Plants with listed heights (i.e. 4-5 ft) are measured from the top of the root ball to the top of the plant. Basically, what will be exposed out of the ground after planting. We do not count the root ball or container in the tree size.

Many of our plants come in the plastic Nursery Containers in which they are grown. These containers come in various sizes. Typically, the larger the container, the more mature and larger the plant is. The containers are measured by the "Gallon". More often than not, the larger the gallon size, the larger the plant.
