Iijima Sunago

If this tree had a flavor as well as beauty, the taste would be chocolate.

Like many shrubs but unlike many Japanese Maples, this variety grows wider than tall, taking over with beauty that appears to float over the landscape it covers. The leaves start out burgundy in spring but quickly transition to a light green. Warm orange overtones overtake the green in the fall.
