Mikawa Yatsubusa Japanese Maple
Three Seasons of Changing Foliage Colors!
What makes 'Mikawa Yatsubusa' so distinctive is the way in which the leaves are held. Deeply lobed and quite elongated, they arise in tufts, overlapping one another, as if fanned out for display. This creates little canopies on every branch, a very striking effect.
In spring, the new foliage unfurls in shades of yellow-tinted green, very pale and eye-catching. As summer arrives, they darken to a rich mid-green and remain that way until the cooler temperatures of autumn, when they burnish brightest orange to scarlet. Fantastic!
A must-have for any Japanese Maple aficionado, 'Mikawa Yatsubusa' repays minimal effort with a lifetime of beauty and multi-season interest. It is absolutely outstanding in containers or the garden, and we give it our highest recommendation. Zones 5-8.
