The leaf lobes of this slow-growing, upright, green Japanese maple vary in width from narrow and strap-like to hardly more than a leaf vein, which produces an elegant, soft look. The new leaves unfold with crimson tones, but quickly turn green and then take on shades of orange and gold for fall. Named “Golden Old Harp” (or “Harp Strings”) in Japanese, this variety can tolerate 80% shade. Also known as ‘Koto-no-it.’ Don’t forget to check out the wide selection of Acer palmatum species.
