Acer palmatum Koto-no-Ito, commonly known as the Harp String Japanese Maple, is a deciduous tree with slender, linear-lobed leaves that hang like the strings of a harp, hence its common name. The leaves unfurl as light green in spring, turn to a vibrant green in summer and transition to captivating shades of gold and orange in the autumn. Koto-no-Ito typically reaches a height and width of approximately 2 to 3 metres, forming a compact, upright but slightly cascading shape. It thrives best in part shade, sheltered from harsh winds, and prefers well-drained, slightly acidic soil. This slow-growing Acer is often used as a focal point in the garden for its fine-textured, year-round interest, making it an excellent choice for small gardens, containers or as an elegant addition to a Japanese-inspired garden.
