Acer palmatum 'Oto hime' Dwarf Japanese Maple
Acer palmatum 'Oto hime'
Dwarf Japanese Maple
‘Oto hime’ is a small compact dwarf Japanese maple maple with small green leaves. The habit is more flat and toadstool-like. Dr. Creech of SFA Gardens says these types have become a favorite of his. The dense multi-branched shapes lend well to bonsai training. The lateral growth make this short Japanese maple excellent for containers. ‘Oto hime’ may reach 3 ft in height by 5 ft in width in 10 years. Make sure to give ‘Oto hime’ protection from the hot afternoon sun in zone 8 and 9. Fall color on ‘Otohime’ can range from yellow to orange or even red.
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.
