Acer palmatum 'Shishigashira' Lion's head Japanese maple


'Shishigashira' is a small Japanese maple. It grows in a stiff vase shape. The lions head maple has short, stubby twigs growing from short branches covered with dense deep green foliage. Mature specimens form a broad oval. This combined with the densly layered ruffled branches give it the appearance of a lion's head, especially with the outstanding deep orange and yellow gold fall foliage. The lion's head maple is one of the last trees to turn color in the fall. It could be November before the foliage begins to take on a golden color.

Hardiness: Zone 5-9
Plant Use: Tree
Exposure: Full or Partial Sun
Water Requirements: Well drained soil. The more sun it gets the more water it needs.
