Positive Todd_Boland On Dec 27, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This is a very dwarf selection that will reach 2 m as a maximum and is more often, under 1 m in height. The small leaves are typical Palmatum Group in shade. The spring foliage is reddish-orange but turns to light green with a hint of yellow. It turns yellow in autumn. Being small, it makes a perfect container plant, bonsai or rock garden subject.
