Mikawa yatsubusa


Heat Stress

Maples ordered in summer may have burned leaves, and look bad, but this is only temporary. Still, spring and especially fall are far better times to ship and plant than summer. We'll delay shipments when temperatures exceed 90 F.




The pointed leaves on this dwarf form overlap, forming a dense mat. The bright green leaves are a bit larger than on most yatsubusa types, but their long, narrow lobes are quite graceful, crowded onto short stems and overlapping like shingles. It is a small, compact plant, perhaps reaching 6' about when the lion lies down with the lamb. Rare and in demand for its neat, unusual habit. Introduced by J.D. Vertrees in the 1960s.

This tree is about 10 in. tall. Price includes shipping, $25 to the Northwest, $30 elsewhere.

Shipping Regions





If plants are not in good condition, we'll refund their price plus shipping, but will replace only if you agree to pay for shipping the replacements, assuming any are available. Numbers are very limited.
