    Re: Acer amoenum 'Oshio Beni'

    Hi,
    She’s definitely a beauty who stands out for her the unique brick orangish color in both spring and fall. (Compare to most common purplish bloodgood and emperor one).
    She’s been well established in sand base soil for years and been taking care of by Mother Nature.

    Thanks again, seems like a good fit for my site. Similar conditions but maybe a bit warmer.

    I'm on the lookout for 'Oshio beni'.

    The Acer amoenum 'Oshio beni' thread has been merged into this one (if you're wondering why the conversation may now be a little bit difficult to follow)

    So pretty - I'm jealous! As I recall, last year my Oshio beni was one of the very last to open. I'm not even seeing significant swelling yet.

    My OB struggled last year. And this year it just wasn't getting enough sun. So I dug it up and moved it. And no wonder it didn't like that location. Icky clay.

    So I moved it and trimmed it up quite a bit. It's gotten most of its red back but still has some green shading in areas that get less sun.

    I have two Oshio beni. One received almost full sun and is still red. The other gets less sun and was, for a time, a dusky, blackish, purple-ish plum sort of color. This is its current appearance.

    The one that was in almost full sun is neither purple-red nor orange-red. I'd say it's a true red. Maybe with some purple undertones but not nearly as much purple as a Fireglow.

    Hi Charlie, I would like to get your expert opinion between the Oshio beni vs. Osakazuki. I am planning to get one tree this falls and could not decided which one since I only has room for one, I wish I can get both. I heard that the Osakazuki shows a brilliant red in the falls while oshio is showing a red-orange color now even in the summer time. Any input is appreciated.
    Thanks, steven
