Goshiki Kotohime Japanese Maple
The Goshiki Kotohime Japanese Maple, Acer p. 'Goshiki Kotohime', has a unique appearance. The crinkled leaves of this small upright bush tightly clump along the ends of the branches.
These tiny star-shaped leaves are variegated with shades of pink-red in spring, turning in autumn to striking yellow-orange to orange-red; creates a lacy appearance.
It prefers filtered to full sun and well drained soil. Goshiki Kotohime is one of the first of Japanese Maples to come into leaf and having a small stature. It is also one of the top miniature Japanese Maples!
The trunk and stems are its best features because they thicken at an early age for an ancient look. This is a rare and wonderful dwarf!
It is a good choice for the small garden, containers, and rock gardens. It puts on a nice show in spring when the lightly variegated pink-rose leaves emerge, and again in the fall when its stunning red and orange colors appear!
