    Nice cultivar but very close to Deshojo. What are the differences ?

    Beni Maiko does not hold its color as well as Deshojo but the second season growth will have dark scarlet red odd shaped leaves that are quite attractive. This usually only happens on more mature trees.

    'Beni Maiko' 6-21-08. This tree is awesome. The spring color was better than Deshojo....my neighbor has one. And yes ok it is not as bright as hers is now, but the features are so much cooler. More distinct colors and the wrinkled leaves are incredible as they change from spring to summer.

    Regards,
    Cirque

    i agree with cirque with the spring color.... sometimes i have a hard time differentiating between makio and deshojo but the wrinkled leaves are the giveaway! My makio got TOSTED by late frost but it pushed its second growth with great success. i think next year i may throw some shade cloth for a week or two so it doesn't get fried again weird winter i guess.

    Another early bird,this one's already faded from the dazzling bright red which 'Shin Deshojo' is just now displaying.This year it's fading with some yellow colouration in the leaves producing this nice almost brick-red appearance.It's a close call but I still prefer this one out of the two cultivars.

    here is a photo of my new Beni maiko. it is interesting int that the big tree is not as vivid red as a smaller one I have. It may just be from the different light picked up from the camera so I will shot more shots of the tre with different light.

    My new Beni maiko. How sun tolerant is this cultivar? Trying to determine where I should site it.

    Tolerates full sun in Atlanta Georgia. However it does hold its color longer if you can give it a cooler location and still get a half day of morning sun.

    My newest addition, a Beni Maiko. Love the color and leaf size varietion of this tree. Photos were taken yesterday, Aug 2014. I also have a Shin Deshojo. Looking forward to comparing the color intensity of the two this Fall and next Spring.

    Another photo.
