Shaina is a new Japanese maple with a dwarf, compact form. Bright red new foliage matures to deep maroon-red. Slow grower to about 6 to 8 feet tall or clip to shape. Prefers filtered sun. Hardy to -20 to -10 degrees. Shaina's smaller stature is excellent for foundation beds around homes and in naturalistic drifts of landscape. They are ideal for urban gardens where plants are protected by buildings from wind and sun. Maples even do well in large containers for porch, patio or terrace.
