Acer palmatum 'Mikawa yatsubusa'
Mikawa yatsubusa Japanese Maple
Deciduous, small to medium sized maple. Foilage is a lush green with fine red serrations on the margins. Fall color brings a combination of reds, oranges, and yellows, depending on how much sun the tree is receiving. Sharply lobed leaves form a dense carpet on the tree, due to unusual branching caused by very short internodes. A rare, one of a kind cultivar that is one of the best picks for bonsai.
