Japanese Maples and Conifers

Acer palmatum 'Yama hime'

 

Yama hime means dwarf mountain which adequately describes this small mounding shrub. The long slender lobes appear in spring edged in red. As summer approaches the leaves turn to a dark green. This cultivar, like 'Shishio hime', seems to be a lower growing more spreading version than some of the other maples of this type. Fall color is yellow to orange.
