Acer palmatum Shishigashira

Acer palmatum ‘Shishigashira’, commonly known as Lion’s Head Maple, is a captivating ornamental small tree renowned for its distinctive foliage and compact growth habit. Its name, which translates to “lion’s head” in Japanese, refers to the densely packed clusters of leaves resembling the mane of a lion. The leaves are small, crinkled, and arranged in tight tufts along the stems, creating a unique and almost sculptural appearance. In spring, the foliage emerges with vibrant green hues, transitioning to rich shades of bronze, crimson, or deep purple in autumn, offering a stunning display of seasonal colours. ‘Shishigashira’ is prized for its compact size, making it suitable for small gardens, containers, or as a focal point in a landscape design. This cultivar thrives in partial shade to full sun and prefers well-draining, acidic soil. It’s a popular choice among gardeners seeking a visually striking and low-maintenance addition to their outdoor spaces.
