Koto maru is a round dwarf tree with tiny pink/yellow leaves in spring, changing to darker green by summer. Fall color is crimson red. In Japanese the name means “round harp.” Prefers sun or partial shade in well-drained soil. In 10 years Koto maru may be 3′ tall and wide. This little cutie has wonderful color for 6 months of the year – beats most perennials. Once established Koto maru is hardy to -10 degrees – USDA zone 6.

Excellent for bonsai or a patio container.
