The Koto No ito Japanese Maple is a rare and unique variety of these special trees, noted for its graceful foliage, which is deeply cut into long, narrow lobes, almost like the leaves of bamboo. The leaves begin the season in shades of crimson, turning apple green for the summer, and then in fall becoming yellow, then gold, with blushes of oranges lifting the colors into brilliant tones, and accenting the wonderful narrow foliage of this special tree. It will grow to around 6 feet tall, and eventually perhaps to 10 feet, but it has a narrow, more upright form, which makes it ideal for smaller gardens, and smaller spaces. It also grows well in a large pot, where it can be easily moved around and enjoyed in any part of your garden, or on a terrace or patio. It also makes a perfect bonsai specimen.

  • Wonderful narrow leaf lobes, like bamboo
  • Spectacular fall colors of gold and orange
  • Narrower, upright form for smaller spaces
  • Ideal choice for partial shade
  • Easily grown with basic care

Koto No ito means the strings of a harp, and the wonderful narrow lobes of this tree hang down in a most graceful and elegant fashion. It will grow easily in any moist, well-drained soil, preferably enriched with organic material. Grow it in a partially-shaded location, protected from the hot midday and afternoon sun. It will grow well in the shade from tall deciduous trees, which is like its natural habitat, or in the shade on the north side of a building. It has no significant pests or diseases, and it is easily grown with minimal care.
