Acer buergerianum ssp. formosanum. 'Miyadono' I have two ‘Miyadono’. The first was purchased from An online nursery in mid June 2022. When I received it, it was late at night and I couldn’t spend much time examining it. My initial impression was that it looked like any other standard species Acer buergerianum. The next morning I disappointedly went out to the garden to pot it and noticed that almost the entire tree was actually growth from the rootstock! The scion was only a 3” long twig with 4 tiny leaves on it. I reported this to the nursery and they agreed to send another specimen and advised me to clip off the suckers from the rootstock. I did this and reported my now tiny ‘Miyadono’ in a clay pot. 3 of the 4 leaves fell off within 2 days and 8 was left with only 1. I’m pleased to say that a month later, this little guy has flushed out over a dozen leaves and they appear to be growing vigorously. The 1 leftover leaf is still hanging on but did turn a bit brown. So far this appears somewhat similar to ‘Miyasama Yatsubusa’ though the leaves appear to have rounder lobes. I’ll be able to give you an update once the leaves harden off.
