Discovered as a witches' broom mutation on Acer palmatum 'Ukon' (also known as Acer palmatum 'Aoyagi'). A beautiful dwarf Japanese maple all year-round. New leaves emerge light-green in spring, turn yellow-green during summer, and change to a golden-yellow in autumn. During winter, the beautiful green bark on young stems lightens up otherwise dull areas. Prefers moist, well-drained soils. May suffer leaf scorch from excess sun, wind, and drought. Cold hardy and great for bonsai.

The grade size is the size of the bag/pot the tree is in. This is measured in either litres or pints per bag.

The height is the overall height of the tree from the top of the pot/bag (bottom of the trunk) to the top of the tree. Some grades have height ranges as the heights of the individual trees vary.

The standard height is the height of the clear trunk from the bottom of the trunk to the graft or the first branch (if it is not grafted).

Grades that are in production are not yet ready for sale. You can place a pre-order for a 50% deposit and we will hold the stock until it is ready. Enquire if interested.

Prices subject to change without notice. Actual stock quantity may differ. Heights are given in good faith but we give no guarantee as to the height of the final product due to natural variables beyond our control.
