We absolutely love Miyasama trident maples here at Kaedebonsai-En and have been growing them for nearly 2 decades. Originally the seed came from Japan and we grew them and still have the stock plants today. These are cutting grown here at Kaede Bonsai-en, and are well established in 2 1/4" containers.
