Quick Overview:

‘Shaina’ is an outstanding little dwarf tree with beautiful dense foliage. This cultivar grows upright and has two toned red foliage that sits upon short shoots. ‘Shaina’ grows into a globe shaped tree. The leaves emerge bright red in the spring, become a dark purple red for the summer, and turn a bright crimson color in the fall. ‘Shaina’ holds its color well through the summer and into the beginning of the fall season. Experts say that ‘Shaina’ originated as a sport from the colorful ‘Bloodgood’, Japanese maple.

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 at least some afternoon shade in the southern parts (including Durham) of its growing range. New foliage may scorch in full sun locations in hot summer 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.
