This upright green palmatum makes a nice compact tree that seems to be a solid semi-dwarf. It has been very elusive to photograph as the yellow-green color never seems to come out very well. It handles sun well and will show a very light reddish hue in the lobe margins in adequate light. Another attractive feature are its red petioles and irregular growth habit. It is similar in form when young to Hoshi kuzu. Photos today 06/10/05.
