Quick Overview:

A selection of ‘Sango kaku’ seedlings that exhibits variations in its bark color. Bark colors can range from almost yellow to coral red depending on the time of year and the age of bark. Bark color is always best in full sun and sometimes can show up yellow on the shady side which gives the plant a totally different look depending on the angle from which it is viewed. In spring Japanese Sunrise emerges with small lime green leaves that darken as summer takes hold, then in fall change to a quite remarkable shade of yellow.

Description

Easily grown in moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Grows well in sandy loams. May be grown in full sun in the northern parts of its growing range, but prefers some part afternoon shade in the southern parts of its growing range. New foliage may scorch in full sun locations in hot summers areas, particularly if soils are not kept consistently moist. Mulch helps retain soil moisture and keep roots cool. Site in locations protected from strong winds. Avoid hot and dry sites. Fertilize in spring before leaves emerge. Pruning is best kept to a minimum, but if needed should be done in late fall to mid winter. Spring or summer pruning often results in significant bleeding.
