Acer palmatum 'Koyamadani nishiki'

Koyamadani nishiki

Snowflake Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9

Known as the Snowflake Japanese maple, as its branches mature 'Koyamadani nishiki' leafs out with green rounded leaves edged slightly in purple red. While young leaves may show pointed lobes, as the tree matures each lobe on every leaf becomes heavily rounded giving each leaf the appearance of a green snow flake. By mid-late spring this border leaves, but this leaf shape continues.

This gives this upright Japanese maple a very soft appearance. Found as an Iroha momiji (matsumurae) seedling in the Shiga prefecture in Japan, this snowflake maple has an upright but semi-pendulous habit reaching 10 ft in about 10 years. In autumn, this Snowflake maple will electrify your garden with colors of bright golden yellow accented in splotches of orange. This Japanese maple was imported into the United States in the fall of 2008 and is just now making it to the market. Here is your chance to get a really unique and rare Japanese maple.
