Acer palmatum 'Shin hikasa'
Dwarf Reticulated Variegated

Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9


Think of a tightly layered Japanese maple with shingle-like leaves that are variegated like 'Higasayama'. That crazy dwarf Japanese maple exists. It is 'Shin hikasa'. Like all "Higasayama-types", they do not variegate well for us in the cold frame or greenhouse. When you plant the Shin hikasa tree outside, you will see the variegation come through, more than likely the following spring. 'Shin hikasa' leafs out in the early spring with bright pink variegation overtop of green reticulated veins.

As the summer approaches the leaves of Shin hikasa turn to cream, and then to white. Fall colors are oranges to reds. 'Shin hikasa' will get 4 to 5 ft in fifteen years in a dense tightly layered habit. Shin hikasa is extremely rare and hard to find and is a great addition to any garden.

Trees were potted from large liners to gallons in this spring and may not have completely filled out their pots.
