Acer tataricum - (Tatar Maple / Tatarian Maple)


A charming species for a small specimen garden tree or bonsai

Deciduous leaves are generally 3 or 5 lobed and toothed which turn delightful hues of pink, flaming red and yellow in autumn


Grows 3-5 feet within a bonsai pot, or around 10-20 feet within open ground when fully-grown

The trees are easy to keep small (if desired) with pruning


Makes an excellent bonsai tree as the roots are very shallow and it is easily dwarfed
