Acer palmatum 'Bi Hō', also known as Golden Bark Japanese Maple, is a small, slow-growing, deciduous shrub with yellow-green lobed leaves with tints of pink in spring. They turn golden and orange in autumn. After its leaves fall off, attractive golden yellow bark appears in all its beauty, brightening up gloomy winter days and getting a well-deserved attention. Acer palmatum 'Bi Hō' grows in most soil types, but prefers moist and well-drained acidic or neutral soil. It tolerates full sun, but the colour of leaves is most beautiful in partial shade. It needs to be sheltered from cold winds. Lack of soil moisture or excessive exposure can cause leaf scorch. This stunning Japanese maple is attractive all year round and perfect as a specimen plant. It is a great choice for small yards, urban gardens, and rock gardens. Suitable for growing in large containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
