Acer buergerianum 'Miyasama yatsubusa'

Growth Habit: small, oval-shaped tree
USDA Zone: 6-8

Comments: Emerging tri-lobed leaves are purple-bronze maturing to green for the growing season. In fall leaves may begin bright yellow and then turn an intense red-orange to purple. Originated in Japan prior to 1900 and translates to "dwarf prince". Very popular bonsai selection and a great choice for small gardens.
