Acer palmatum 'Yuri hime'

 

This little plant has deeply divided leaves that are clustered tightly along the branches. With short internodal lengths 'Yuri hime can be quite difficult to propagate therefore it is rarely seen in nurseries. Spring color is pale green growing darker in summer even more so in heavy shade. While sun tolerant in many areas, it should be placed in partial shade in hotter climates. Fall color is orange to yellow and usually not spectacular.
