Tsukasa Japanese Maple is a beautiful compact deciduous tree with a nearly columnar pyramidal crown and low branching.  Its palmate rich deep green leaves emerge bright chartreuse and becomes crimson with orange hues in fall.  Small non-showy umbels of red-purple flowers bloom mid-spring followed by samaras.  Grows best in rich, moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.  Prefers full sun in cooler climates, but needs afternoon shade in southern areas.  Tsukasa is heat tolerant and pest resistant.
