Acer palmatum 'Kamagata'

Kamagata Japanese Maple

This small, bushy Japanese Maple produces a dense array of branches and finely textured foliage, qualities that make it ideal for courtyard plantings, containers and bonsai. Small, green spring leaves are decorated with red margins; summer leaves are light green; fall changes them again to yellow–orange with an occasional touch of red.(Iseli Nursery)
