This is the compliment to 'A.p. Sangu kaku', with brilliant lime-green bark in the winter time. Thin, bright green summer foliage turns yellow-gold in the fall. Upright growing small tree with a spreading top. Moderate growth rate of 5-8 inches, with a mature height of 7-13 feet. The branches and twigs, like its coral-barked relative, are succeptible to wind burn in the winter.
