Delicately coloured and exquisitely formed, this newest addition to our bonsai range illustrates that small is beautiful and desirable too.
Maples like this Acer Japonicum were introduced to Europe from Japan in the early 19th century. When Europeans 'discovered' the oriental art of bonsai, a miniature maple was the inevitable result.
