Maple Mikawa Yatsubusa Japanese

Acer palmatum ‘Mikawa Yatsubusa'

$ 69.99 USD

5 gallon+ pots ranging in price from $69.99 to 450.00. The Mikawa Yatsubusa Japanese Maple is a miniature variety that grows just 3 or 4 feet tall in ten years. It is the perfect specimen for a natural bonsai tree, or it can be grown in the garden or in a planter box. It fits perfectly into the smallest space, and if you have a tiny, Asian-themed garden or terrace, this is the ideal choice for a tree. With its exquisite green leaves, like tiny hands, it grows naturally in a tufted fashion, making it look mature and graceful even when young. After a few years you will have an evocative miniature tree, without the detailed work needed to turn other trees into bonsai. If you want a small tree for any partially-shaded spot in your garden, then this is the ideal choice. In fall, it will turn spectacular shades of yellow and red, bringing fall color to the smallest garden. It even produces tiny red flowers and small red seed pods, that decorate the tree in winter, looking like miniature versions of the familiar maple keys seen on large maple trees.

Care Instructions


Plant it in rich, well-drained soil that does not become too dry, and water it regularly, especially when it is young. Add rich, well-rotted organic material to the soil when preparing the planting spot, and mulch each spring with similar material, to protect the roots from drying out, and to feed the tree. Cover all the root-zone, but do not touch the trunk.
