ACER palmatum 'Higasayama'
Higasayama Japanese Maple, Japanese Maple
The beautiful Japanese maple is a small, deciduous tree native to eastern Asia. The cultivar 'Higasayama' features small, deeply lobed, palmate (hand-shaped) leaves which in spring are white and pink with curled margins. Its later leaves are green with flat margins. In winter, the gray branches will add to any garden or landscape. The habit is more upright than that of most Japanese maples.
This Japanese maple prefers sites with rich, well-drained soil and part sun to part shade. It's versatile in the landscape and may be grown as a feature plant, in a mixed border, or in a container.
