Acer palmatum 'Arakawa'

Rough Bark Japanese Maple

Gardeners who value winter interest will seek out this cultivar for its bark. The vigorous, upright Acer palmatum ‘Arakawa’ develops cracks, creases and fissures that give it an aged look, even when young. Whether enjoyed in containers, trained as bonsai or grown out in the garden, it is a collector’s tree that offers green, palmate foliage in summer, an exceptional display of scarlet red in fall, and fascinating bark for winter. Considered by many as the top choice for red fall color in Pacific Northwest gardens.
