    Couldn't find a thread on this cultivar...

    Does anyone have any experience with it? Any known preferences as far as light, etc? It's a 2yr plant, but it looks quite nice and full, though a little lop-sided. :) Hopefully I can correct that over time (was planning to use it for a bonsai). Though, I guess I could always go for a windswept look, not typical for a maple but I do live in Kansas after all! lol

    My Shishio Yatsubusa from Mapletopia. The Yatsubusa cultivars are my favorite group.

    I love little fire ball maple. It's been shining since it opened up.

    That triangle shape that so many aspire to getting, is looking very good indeed 5 years on.
