Available Spring 2019 - In spring the young leaves of this classic maple cultivar emerge a vivid rich-red in colour. As summer progresses the older leaves darken to green but the young shoots are still tipped with burnished-red young leaves.

The leaves finally turn shades of red and orange in autumn before falling. An excellent foliage plant, Acer palmatum 'Deshojo' gives early colour to a garden and is one of the most traditional plants to be grow as a bonsai.
