Like ‘Shishigashira’, the female Lion’s Head Japanese Maple, this cultivar, named for the mythological male lion of Japanese drama, displays short branches loaded with small, densely packed, rich green leaves. They produce a sculptural quality that seems to develop features, so when the foliage turns burnt-orange-gold in fall, a lion’s head and mane are easy to imagine. Use this superb cultivar for small areas and for bonsai culture.
