Acer palmatum 'Shishigashira'

Lion's Head Japanese Maple

"The 'lion's head' maple. Once seen, you'll always remember this maple! Its distinctive, upright branches are thickly covered with small, heavy textured, deep green crinkled leaves that are layered densely on outward spreading branches. Fall color is a brilliant orange, displayed very late in the fall, extending your garden's color display." 

- Iseli (wholesale) Nursery Catalog

This is one of my favorite maples both for its unusual leaves and its spectacular fall color! The growth rate depends on the cultural care provided, but overall it is a semi-slow grower. Properly fertilized plants in the landscape will put on several inches of growth a year, which is quite slow, compared to most other palmatums. A great bonsai candidate because of its growth rate and small leaves!Full sun or part shade. Grafted on A. palmatum seedlings. Zone 6-9.

Size: Grows very slowly, but will get some height.  Has a roughly 15' height at maturity.
