    This is a new one to me, it looks similar to 'Mikawa yatsubusa', but is noticeably diffrent. Photos taken Mar 22 2006.

    Also looks similar to Seiun kaku, but clearly smaller and much more compact. Any idea of the age?

    This photo was taken July 11, 2007. I am hoping the dissimilarity between this photo and the prior post is due to the young age of my cultivar.

    There are times I feel this cultivar is related to Mikawa Yatsubusa, one of my favorites. My 'Japanese Princess' has proven to be a hearty grower, and I especially like the reddish-pink new growth in the springtime.

    Nice looking plant. Anyone know where it can be purchased by mail order?

    I like the looks of this tree, if only it grew faster

    Anyone know where I can find this cultivar? It's proving to be rather elusive...

    Most of us will only see the tree in photos. Maybe in a few years there might be some twigs of it for sale but its growth rate seems does not look like it will produce a good crop. Then again, I am sure the one who owns the original tree would love to reap the rewards of such a pretty maple.

    Here is a new addition to my garden. It is about 10" tall.

    It is wonderful but small

    Best photos again Charlie. The first photo of a gallon Japanese Princess looks just like mine - pink in the spring fading to whitish green.

    All the japanese Princess i have bought have been planted in rocks. This year i did get a few of them. They do not grow much but they sem to be stable and do not die like some of the other minatures.

    Is the OP still active here? (yweride) I would love to see the tree that he posted in 2006 this year. It would be over 10 years old at this point.

    Yes, Yweride, do you still have this cutie from 2006? And Charlie, do you have any larger specimens? I need a good photo for my website - can you share. All my Japanese Princess maples are in 1 gallons and yes, they grow pretty slow.

    Sam, I have a couple of your trees getting ready to bloom in my landscape. My Beni Hoshi and Amber Ghost both came from you. They are very nice trees and I can't wait to see them bloom.

    bub72ck - Great! Good to hear new growth is near - lol. Post some pics. Really, I like to check in on my babies and make sure they made it through the winter. Of course we haven't had much of a winter, more like a long spring. At least this winter we are getting good rain and snow pack.

    Hello, I am in Europe and Japanese Princess is not available yet. I think it is due to the long time to propagate. Would anyone be willing to send me a cutting? I believe there is no issue with this as it is possible to take cuttings through an airport. Only rooted plants are not allowed. I also do not wish to get anything for free or without licence fee. I would be happy to pay the standard price for this plant.
