The foliage is deep green and firm to the touch. The tree structure is stiff – branches and leaves do not wave in the wind, as with most maples. This maple loves full sun and does not burn. Shishigashira is considered a slow growing tree suitable for bonsai enthusiasts. However, over fertilization may lead to rapid growth and an overall leggy look which is not desirable. Shishigashira like other Japanese maples benefits from some pruning to shape the tree, as well as removing any dead branches. We’ve pruned annually to keep our Shishigashira, in our display garden, around 6′ tall and wide.
