Acer palmatum linearilobum 'Beni Otake'

Buy Beni Otake Japanese Maple online. A real favorite with deep purplish red strap like leaves that are really outstanding in spring and turning red in summer. Its name in Japanese means big red bamboo. The leave lobes are thinner than most other well known varieties, giving the appearance of Bamboo leaves.
