Check out my feedback to hear from my satisfied customers! These are very rare seeds and i only have a limited quantity so get them while they last this year!

The leaves are a deep green that lasts into the fall. The leaves are of a heavy substance that is firm to the touch. “shishigashira” holds its leaf color very well even in the hot sun. In the fall this tree is a striking combination of gold suffused with rose and crimson tones. After most other maples begin to lose their color, “shishigashira” bursts into its glamorous color. “shishigashira” is also unique in that it can grow up to 15 feet tall yet it is one of the best bonsai trees in the world. This unique cultivar always attracts attention. It has been in cultivation and published in japanese literature books since the 1880’s. The name “shishigashira” means “lion’s head” or lion’s mane. Seeds are the result of sexual reproduction; since the pollinating tree is not known, and since japanese maple seedlings show great variability, the seedlings will not all look like the parent plant. Just as in humans where children take on characteristics of their parents but are a unique new combination of traits.
This aspect of growing japanese maple seeds is part of what makes growing from seed an interesting and rewarding experience as you may be pleasantly surprised with the results. You never know, you may discover the next big new cultivar that the whole japanese maple community desires! I will include detailed germination instructions with each order.
