The new foliage is a beautiful bright red, not to say ''Fire red''. It keeps this beautiful color over a month later in mid-summer than changes to a red-green quite pleasant even with cream and pink. In the fall, colors are a mixture of red and orange. Small leaf with 5-7 lobes, making it an excellent choice for making bonsai.
Very spectacular and unsual cultivar, iT’s name means lioN’s head. The leaves, small and bright green, grow very close to the stem. The growth, slow and dense, gives a very compact aspect. The leaves turn orange in fall. Good type for bonsais.
This small tree is interesting for its small scale and its vigorous growth; perfect for a small garden. The foliage holds its color well through the summer, dark red to brownish red with a green midrib.The chartreuse samara offer a nice contrast against the foliage. Will need protection for the first winters.
