I have some trees now in that are phenomenal..I have a quantity of 5 GAL Higasayama which is a terrific super hardy sun taking variegate. I didn’t know whether I was getting them so until now they were not on my avail list .. NOW THEY ARE I have them in 5 gallon only and they are shippable .. very large and nice .. this is I think one of the few trees that remains a constant fav of mine they are super boffo.. It is by far the best upright variegate IMHO
I have also have a good quantity of ten gallon Aureum.. Now I know I always warn folks these trees are touchy but I have found this to be less true with larger established trees. They will need allot of shade but their color is unmatched… I will not sell small one period!! It is a waist of your $$ but have found larger ones generally do fine. These are absolutely stunning trees and are shippable
If you are in driving distance I have large niumer of super cool 4-5′ ht and 4 ‘ wide or more Dissectums. These are huge full super healthy boffo trees .. Just to name a few . Red Dragon Inaba shidare, Tamukeyama , Garnet, Emerald lace, Green Filigree and Seiryu
I think the Shishigashira also known as the female lions mane is a truly special tree. Everyone should own one or more… its what makes JMs supremely special… and if you decide own one you are thinking like a true JM’ster not a person who just wants a pretty typical JM in their yard.
Many JMs are hard to id since many are similar .. NO ONE can mistake a Shishigashira. I have some super super nice larger ones available .. most are shippable also though not cheaply …these are specimen trees but at non specimen prices .. . I just think this tree is truly special and always take a peek at them daily.
I usually don’t recommend buying more than one of any single cultivar of Japanese maple .since there are so many super cool ones and why tie up space duplicating cultivars. But shishigashira is an exception.. it is so different, Having them interspersed in mixed plantings is super cool!!
Davidsans has a very nice large selection of what most would call specimen trees priced way below the usual fancy ass nursery specimen prices. Many of these are shippable albiet not cheaply . Others are for pick up only .. Email or call for a list.
A hardy Red Dissectum in a super cool unique form
Want some thing super cool .. these are 15 gallon 4 ‘ wide multi stemmed (3 stemmed) Tamukeyama that have been trained on lattice .. You can leave them on it or take off and make your own or put on a fence , This is a very cool way to take a VERY large dissectun and utilize a pace you ordinarily would be able to use for any JM let alone a large dissectum.. These are NOT shippable but since they are a hardy cultivar any one in the midwest can safely grow them and they can be picked up at Davidsans .. So if you are driving distance and up for a day trip and want something no one else within hundreds, perhaps thousands of miles, will have .. this is your tree. Here are some jpegs of them.
