Korean Maple – Acer pseudo-sieboldianum

$3.45

Lovely summer foliage followed by an explosion of autumn colour.

The Korean Maple is under-utilised as a bonsai, but adapts well to all the styles that other maples are famed for, including exposed-root styles. From the time it bursts into leaf in spring until it gives it’s autumn finale of autumn colour, it is a sheer joy.
