DWARF, green. One of the most fabulous introductions of all the palmatums, 'Kamagata' is a variety of A. palmatum selected by J. D. Vertrees. It is diminutive and bush-like in growth habit but in an open manner, creating a very small tree with the distinct branching usually found only on upright tree forms. Add to this green leaves with red margined detail. Though a dwarf cultivar, it grows vigorously when young. It's tolerant of full sun and dry conditions. Spectacular orange-red leaves in autumn. Excellent for bonsai.

Kamagata is a green leafed dwarf which appears fragile and delicate but is actually a hardy healthy cultivar; the leaves are small, long and irregularly lobed; it grows to a 4' x 4' mound holding its leaves long in the fall with golden and orange colors.
