Acer palmatum 'Mikawa Yatsubusa'

Mikawa Yatsubusa Japanese Maple

The leaves of the multi-branched, compact Acer palmatum ‘Mikawa yatsubusa’ grow closely together and overlap one another like shingles on a roof, producing a dense leaf cover on a sculptural, nearly spherical form. New foliage, light yellow-green with red tips and margins, turns medium green as it matures. In fall, brilliant fiery red and darker red leaves create a dramatic show. Ideal in a small space, courtyard or near water. Prefers a cool site with moist, well-drained, woodland soil.
