I have found a Mejishi and an Ojishi at my local nursery and I'm trying to choose between them. I would really love to hear helpful advice. Any information comparing and contrasting them would be appreciated. This is what I've already gathered from Vertrees... Ojishi is the "male" form, Mejishi is the "female" form of Shishigashira. Ojishi is a dwarf and Mejishi is not. Ojishi has slightly larger leaves and is more rare. As to the size and condition of the two trees at the nursery, both are large for their type and priced accordingly. Their prices are within 10% of each other. The Mejishi does show some scarring in places (yes, more than one) that seem well healed over. It's a bigger, more impressive tree. They are both in fall color and look spectacular. The Mejishi is simply stunning (probably because of its size). The Ojishi looks to be in perfect condition but I'm guessing is a younger tree. I can't afford them both, HELP!
