Area 51 Collection

 Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9


'Kryptonite’ is a new dwarf selection from the Area 51 Collection™ that was found as a variegated sport on ‘Mikawa yatsubusa’. The variegation is quite unique for a tree in the “Mikawa Family”. In the spring, light cream variegation is nice, but as the summer approaches the older growth looks like ‘Manyo no sato’. ‘Kryptonite’ has the tight layering habit everyone loves with ‘Mikawa yatsubusa’, but the fall color is bright yellows to orange. ‘Kryptonite’ may reach 3-4 ft in height and width in 10 years.  Its rich seasonal colors will add dimension to your landscape, transforming your outdoor space in a matter of years. 'Kryptonite's' tight layered branching makes it an ideal choice for small gardens or tight spaces, giving your garden a stunning appearance you'll love.

 Limited Quantities Available !! As we have over a thousand cultivars of Japanese maples, we often do not have many of each cultivar. We recommend that you buy the Japanese maples you want immediately as we often sell out of certain selections.
