Acer palmatum Shaina
'Shaina' is a dwarf, shrubby maple that may grow to only 5 feet in ten years making it perfect for container or rock gardens. In th early 1980's, Richard P. Wolff of Red Maple Nursery, Pennsylvania, discovered a witches-broom on a 100-year old Japanese maple, propagated it, and called it "Shaina". Its leaves emerge bright red in spring, turning a dark maroon in summer, and back to a crimson red in fall. With many shades of red, this small tree brings color to any garden.
