    I noticed this cultivar was not listed, and I got one this spring. The literature describes it thusly:

    "This robust dwarf with small, deeply divided leaves has dark brown shoots. When they first appear, the young leaves are a pink-red, turning yellow green before becoming green for the summer. The fall color is a vivid orange red."

    Mature height is 3 - 6 feet. So far, this tree looks like one of those "natural" bonsai types. The leaves are dense and the plant seems to shape itself in a pleasing way.

    If anyone has pictures of a mature plant, please post. This one seems scarce.

    Regards,

    Akita Yatsubusa I picked up. Grown at Don Schmidt nursery and purchased in North Carolina. It’s about 4’ x 4’.
