'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 that reaches a height of 5 ft. in approximately 10 years (continues to grow from this point forward). 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 tremendous color 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.

Our Japanese Maple trees are grown and shipped in containers. They ARE NOT recent transplants into larger size containers to give the illusion of a larger tree, but rather trees that have grown and filled their current container size. They have been meticulously maintained and pruned in order to provide our customers with a plant that is healthy, strongly rooted, well branched - all in proportion. We invite you to compare our plants and prices. And don't forget to include that shipping charge that won't usually appear until you are at the end of your checkout.
For your garden you want the very best. Never settle. Insist on Leaves and Petals!
