Three Seasons of Changing Foliage Colors!

Beautifully layered branches.

Considered one of the top 3 varieties in the world for bonsai, beautiful 'Mikawa Yatsubusa' is a naturally dwarf, layered little tree with tight branching. If left alone, it will reach about 5 feet high and wide within a decade, and stays much smaller if root-trimmed for bonsai!

What makes 'Mikawa Yatsubusa' so distinctive is the way in which the leaves are held. Deeply lobed and quite elongated, they arise in tufts, overlapping one another, as if fanned out for display. This creates little canopies on every branch, a very striking effect.

In spring, the new foliage unfurls in shades of yellow-tinted green, very pale and eye-catching. As summer arrives, they darken to a rich mid-green and remain that way until the cooler temperatures of autumn, when they burnish brightest orange to scarlet. Fantastic!

A must-have for any Japanese Maple aficionado, 'Mikawa Yatsubusa' repays minimal effort with a lifetime of beauty and multi-season interest. It is absolutely outstanding in containers or the garden, and we give it our highest recommendation. Zones 5-8.

Got this beauty last year & planted it in a large tall pot & it weathered the hot Oklahoma summer without any leaf burn at all. This year it has leafed out really full & bushy & a gorgeous limey green color. I think it's very happy in the pot & will make a stunning specimen for many years to come! I've ordered several Japanese maples from them & have always been thrilled with them. Wonderful products!
