Acer palmatum 'Bi Hoo' is a striking Japanese maple cultivar admired for its vibrant, textured bark and dynamic seasonal foliage. During winter, this deciduous tree showcases a stunning yellow-orange to coral bark, providing significant winter interest, contrasting the bleak surroundings. This bark coloration becomes a prominent feature as the tree matures and older bark peels away.

In the spring, 'Bi Hoo' produces small, inconspicuous flowers complemented by delicate, light green leaves which transform into a lush, deeper green in the summer. These palmate leaves are characterized by their serrated edges, typical of the Acer palmatum species, creating intricate patterns in the canopy.

Come autumn, the foliage transcends into a brilliant display of yellow, orange, and sometimes red, adding a spectacular finale to its seasonal performance. The diversity in color and texture throughout the year makes 'Bi Hoo' an enchanting focal point in gardens and landscapes.

Reaching around 15 feet at maturity, it is a relatively small tree, making it an ideal choice for smaller landscapes or confined spaces. It prefers well-drained, slightly acidic soils and protection from harsh winds and extreme sun, ensuring optimal growth and health. The unique characteristics of 'Bi Hoo' offer year-round aesthetic appeal.

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).
