    This is a real cool wild growing tree. It lives up to its name.

    In what way? Are their white variegations on a green background? Are the leaves really that tiny, or just unfurling?

    I have one on order. It's just a green dissected leaf, isn't it. The first dissected shirasawanum? Also dwarf?

    As for the growth pattern, it is a bit wild, it grows more laterial. It seems to grow a lot but mine are fresh from the grower and full of food. The leaves are smaller than many shirawanum and have a nice lighter green color. The leaves themselves are dissected and look very similar to a snowflake.

    I've been considering picking one of these up... Would you recommend it? What do you like/dislike about it? A picture showing the general habit of the tree would be most appreciated, if you are able. :)

    Thanks!!!

    In two years that will fill that space @Worldly_Wrangler. A mass of colour every Autumn.

    Second year with this little one. It's coming alone nicely.
