Acer palmatum 'Shishigashira' originates from Japan and has a history dating back to the 1800s. It still thrives in the wild forests of Japan, where it can grow to a height of 5 meters. The name 'Shishigashira' translates to "lion's head," describing the appearance of the densely curled leaves at the tips of short shoots. The compact arrangement of leaves and twigs gives this tree its distinctive character. The crinkled, bright green foliage further enhances its visual appeal.

'Shishigashira' maintains its vibrant color throughout the summer, displaying remarkable resistance to sunburn even in intense sunlight.

During the fall season, the tree exhibits a captivating blend of gold, complemented by hints of red and orange. This exquisite combination of colors makes 'Shishigashira' a captivating focal point in any garden setting.
