Acer palmatum shishi gashiraA slow growing maple with unusually glossy leaves that are often curled up.  Drawing attention to itself for its foliage, this variety has deep green leaves that last into autumn and are heavy and firm to touch.  'Shishi Gashira' is also unique in that it can grow to 15 feet tall yet it is considered one of the best bonsai trees in the world. The name 'Shishi Gashira' means "Lion's Head" or "Lion's Mane."
