Known for its rich red colors and graceful branch development, it's a vibrant classical bonsai tree choice. Its new spring shoots have a "firetruck red" which fade into a bright green as the temperatures rise for the summer. Then it switches back to a "cherry red" with the secondary growth. The five-lobed leaves then change into orange and darker reds for the fall. The tree maintains a delicate shape even when bare for the winter months. It's a slightly more forgiving type in the maple family.
