PALMATUM, green. Syn. 'Cristatum' or 'Ribesifolium'. A most unusual, slow growing form with small, curly, leaves are densely set close to the stems. The foliage is held longer into the fall; when other maples are showing fall color, 'Shishigashira' remains as green as summer. One day, after all others have faded, it bursts into colors of gold, orange and red. Fall coloration and intensity are influenced by the tree's location. Popular for bonsai use.

Compact, 'stubby' growth makes this (7-12') variety ideal for bonsai, containers ; small landscapes. Bright-green, very crinkled foliage is 7-lobed ; densely packed on the short twigs; different ; very attractive. PSh/M

Stout upright branches with avocado green bark and crinkled, wavy leaves in clusters held tightly to the branches. An outstanding specimen tree.
