Have had this plant about three years now. In my experience so far, it has the interesting habit of pushing out growth twice per year: Once in the spring when you of course expect it, and it has added an additional foot each fall. Perhaps I have a slightly different cultivar from the other commenter on this plant; it's already three feet all after three years (growing in a container with morning sun and afternoon shade on a very hot deck) and shows no sign of slowing!

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

This dwarf Japanese maple belongs to the Palmatum Group. The small leaves emerge rusty-red then become light green in summer, turning back yellow and orange in autumn. The bushy plant will reach only a meter high (3 feet). Perfect plant for a container, for training as bonsai or for placing in a rock garden.
