A wonderful, exciting variety of Japanese Acer, 'Koto No Ito' is Japanese for 'Harp Strings' referring to the very narrow foliage that this plant has. It bears five or seven lobed leaves and the lobes are exceptionally long, thin and narrow. They are similar to that of Bamboo, but leaves will differ in shape and size on the same plant.
In Summer, the leaves are an apple-green colour, but unusually, as Autumn approaches they turn stunning shades of bronze and golden yellow before dropping. With smooth, light-green bark that adds excellent Winter interest, this is a stunning and highly unusual Acer worthy of any collection.
'Koto No Ito' will mature into a graceful, rounded, medium-sized shrub with long, weeping leaves. As the leaves are quite delicate, it should be planted where it is sheltered from strong winds and the harshest mid-day sun. Do look through the different pictures to see the wonderful colour transformations that this Acer will go through each and every year. Supplied in approx. 2 litre containers.
