Acer palmatum ‘Mika’
Well drained neutral/acid
The foliage of this variety emerges each spring bright salmon orange, but as they mature (and throughout the summer), the leaves are soft golden green. In autumn the leaves change colour once again, turning bright orange this time before they are shed. A bushy shrub ‘Mika’ has an upright habit, so it works well in a pot, but it will also make an excellent specimen for smaller gardens.
