Rough Bark Japanese Maple Seedling

Acer palmatum

There are several cultivars of Japanese maples with interesting bark. The most vigorous and easiest to grow and train for bonsai is the Rough Bark Japanese maple cultivar ‘Arakawa.’

Truer from cutttings, many of these seedlings have shown the characteristic rough bark at a young age. These seedlings are from my forty year old garden which is covered with rough bark and has survived severe winters in Rochester, New York. Each seedling has been root pruned to encourage surface roots and wired to create trunk movement. Branches will quickly develop. The bright autumn color is reliable for these choice seedlings established in three inch pots.
