Akita yatsubusa is a true dwarf palmatum that is similar in appearance to Sharps Pygmy. Its twigs are brown and its leaves are larger than those of Sharps Pygmy. Akita yatsubusa has good orange red fall color. At maturity, this dwarf will reach 4’ by 4’.

Similar to Sharp's Pygmy, this green leafed dwarf is both denser and more vigorous--both good things. The leaves come out in the spring with a touch of pink and then turn yellow and finally green for the summer. Fall color is orange, red, gold, etc. This one is a keeper.
