Acer palmatum 'Mikawa kaen' Dwarf Japanese Maple
Acer palmatum 'Mikawa kaen'
Rare Golden Dwarf Japanese Maple
'Mikawa kaen’ is an exciting new Mikawa type from Cripsin Silva, who also introduced 'Mystic Mikawa'. 'Mikawa kaen' displays a unique golden bronze spring color with the tight layering habit that makes the Mikawa Family Collection so desired. In the fall 'Mikawa kaen' has turned orange to red in the cold frames at the nursery and we would expect this to be similar in the landscape. 'Mikawa kaen', which translates as "Mikawa Gold", is expected to reach 3-5 ft in height in 10 years. It is definitely a slow grower, making it excellent for small gardens, containers, or to be trained as bonsai.
