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.

  • Perfect natural bonsai tree
  • Only 3 feet tall after ten years
  • Natural dense, bushy form of great beauty
  • Dramatic fall colors of yellow and red
  • Easy to grow in a container or in the garden

Plant the Mikawa Yatsubusa Japanese Maple in a spot that has morning sun, but light shade for the rest of the day. It will grow best in acidic or neutral soil, and it should be watered regularly, especially in the first few years. It has no significant pests or diseases, and it is easy to grow with minimal care. If you crave those miniature trees, but don’t have time for detailed care, then this tree is the ideal choice to make. It is rarely available, so this is an unusual opportunity to grow something very special, yet easy to care for.
