These seeds were picked fresh this past fall. They have been washed and dried.
When the leaves first unfold in the spring they are a light yellow-green color. The thin-textured leaves become a medium green as they mature. The medium green leaf color turns golden-orange in the fall.
The outer portion of the leaves have bright red tips. The leaves are slightly longer than those of other dwarf forms.
The growth structure is multi-branched, forming a compact little plant. “mikawa yatsubusa” is always in great demand and when pruned can look like a near perfect japanese maple specimen.
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.
