'Mikawa Yatsubusa' is an outstanding dwarf Japanese maple that is arguably one of the top three maples in the world today when it comes to bonsai. This dwarf tree has outstanding structure, color and dense foliage. The leaves on this little dwarf overlap one another like shingles on a roof. When the leaves first unfold in the spring they are a light yellow-green color. The thin-textured leaves become a medium green as they mature. The medium green leaf color turns golden-orange in the fall. The outer portion of the leaves have bright red tips. The leaves are slightly longer than those of other dwarf forms. The growth structure is multi-branched, forming a compact little plant. 'Mikawa Yatsubusa' is always in great demand and when pruned can look like a near perfect Japanese maple specimen.
