Acer Palmatum - 'Sharp's Pygmy'

This clean-looking dwarf is one of the smallest palmatum cultivars, possibly reaching 3 to 4 feet tall. 'Sharp's Pygmy' has very dense, compact foliage. It doesn't need to be pruned or trained to give it a bonsai-like appearance. The tiny leaves are an attractive bright clear green before turning a beautiful orange to scarlet color in the fall. This cultivar was first noticed by Jimmy Sharp in the early 1980's. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Sharp began propagating this new cultivar at his nursery in Oregon. 'Sharp's Pygmy' is an ideal small focal plant for a garden or patio container. It is a truly remarkable dwarf.
