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.

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.
