Shaina Japanese Maple
The Shaina Japanese Maple, 'Acer palmatum 'Shaina', is an compact, ornamental, understory dwarf tree that is grown primarily for its red foliage and interesting shape!
With its non-dissected leaves clustered on short shoots, it displays a bushy, tufted habit that will grow 4-5' tall in 8 years. Appearing dark maroon during the summer, the leaves then change to a brilliant red in the fall. Shaina Japanese Maple will hold its color well throughout each season.
Grow Shaina Japanese Maple in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Sometimes it prefers lightly dappled shade.
Grow it with vividly contrasting foliage plants such as Sunsation Japanese Barberry. Shaina Japanese Maple makes a wonderful specimen or accent tree for that smaller landscape, or it can be grouped for a stunning shrub border.
