Acer palmatum "Mikawa yatsubsa"

Post  Gary Swiech on Sat Apr 09, 2016 1:32 pm

Does anyone grow Acer palmatum "Mikawa yatsubsa" as a bonsai?

I'm planting a bunch of seeds I purchased from Buchholz Nursery.

I know you know that the seedlings can not be labelled "Mikawa Yastubusa" because they will not be genetically identical. Bucholz has so many different maples in his collection you never know what the other parent was. However, if its from Bucholz, you can safely bet the other parents were not dull or boring, he has some fantastic cultivars. Some of the seedlings could be very interesting. Some might even be dwarfs, maybe even yatsubusa, and with better, more interesting colors to boot.

I do understand I will get some variations in phenotype, but I love working with seed. They sell some seeds of some of their crosses and they are interesting. They all have a pretty powerful Yastubusa form with very short internodes. That is what I'm

hoping for.

Hi Gary,
i have a Acer palmatum - Mikawa.


The Mikawa makes very short internodes. It is not necessary to pinch.


He blooms in spring.


The colours in autumn is nice.


ciao

I just bought one of these. It is a 1/8 inch seedling about 10 inches tall. Under ideal conditions, how long before it has a 1 inch trunk.  I've grown common green Japaneese Maples and they grow pretty fast. I'm wanting to make a shohin sized tree. 

Thanks.

I don't know how fast it grows but it has an ultimate size around 5'-10'.

Thanks for the pictures. I'll post some pics when the germinate. I haven't even started repotting, there's still some snow here, but they are in a drum pot
that has been in my winter house stratified. All they need is some warm temps.

Here's what they look like on their site;

I thought Buchholz Nursery is wholesale only? Do they sell to Bonsai artists? I am hoping you are going to say yes they do!

I was in the nursery business all my life now retired. I never did any business with Buchholz Nursery.

Contact them at the address in my first post. I think that is what I did. They may sell to you.
