An excellent dwarf, Hanami is unfortunately difficult to propagate so we sometimes have years of Hanami drought. The leaves are tiny and come out pinkfringed in spring turning yellowy later on. If fertilized it can burst out with long twigs and will dwarfen back up only upon starvation. The pic from Michael Healy is a good representation.

Hanami nishiki is a green dwarf maple with thumbnail-sized palmatum leves and even smaller secondary leaves. It forms a tight, bush-like shape that is perfect for bonsai or as a patio plant. Fall color is a nice orange-red. (Flower viewing for the season of cherry blossom)

DWARF, green. A delightful dwarf that has about the smallest palmatum leaf form. Light green leaves with orange-red tips appear in the spring, later turning light green or yellowish-green. Growth is slow and densely branched. Great for bonsai and rare in cultivation.

One of the real gems of the dwarf group (Vertrees), the TINY (to only 1/2 to 1"!) leaves, densely packed on delicate twigs, are orange-tinted in spring, light yellow-green all summer; eventually 4-6';"flower-viewing tapestry". Sun-PSh/Med
