Plant Description

Acer palmatum 'Deshojo', commonly known as Deshojo maple, is a stunning cultivar of the Japanese maple tree renowned for its vibrant red foliage. Here's a description:

  • Foliage: The most striking feature of Acer palmatum 'Deshojo' is its brilliant crimson-red foliage. In spring, the leaves emerge a bright red, gradually maturing to a deeper red-purple in summer. In autumn, they often intensify to fiery shades of scarlet, adding a dramatic burst of color to the landscape.

  • Size and Shape: This cultivar typically grows as a small to medium-sized deciduous tree, reaching heights of around 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters) with a similar spread. It tends to have a rounded or slightly dome-shaped canopy, creating an elegant silhouette.

  • Branches: The branches of 'Deshojo' are slender and graceful, forming a delicate framework for the foliage. They often display a slightly cascading or weeping habit, adding to the tree's overall visual appeal.

  • Growing Conditions: Like most Japanese maples, 'Deshojo' prefers a sheltered location with partial shade, especially in hotter climates where it benefits from protection from the afternoon sun. It thrives in well-draining, slightly acidic soil and requires regular watering, particularly during periods of drought.

  • Landscape Use: Acer palmatum 'Deshojo' is a prized ornamental tree, valued for its exceptional beauty and year-round interest. It makes a striking focal point in gardens, courtyards, or Japanese-style landscapes. Its relatively compact size also makes it suitable for smaller spaces, such as urban gardens or patios.

  • Cultural Significance: In addition to its horticultural value, Japanese maples hold cultural significance in Japan, where they are cherished for their beauty and symbolism. 'Deshojo' is named after a famous temple in Kyoto, reflecting its connection to Japanese tradition and heritage
