Red Snakebark Maple, a small maple from the mountains of Japan, so named for its snake-like, striped bark. This small tree seedling is seed-grown on California's Redwood Coast and will start to leaf out before your own eyes. 

As the Chinese proverb goes, "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." This little seedling will ultimately grow to 30 – 40' tall / 30 – 40' spread. A medium grower, you can enjoy nurturing it and transferring to sequentially larger pots before transferring to the garden. 

Full Sun / Partial Shade / Cold Hardiness to -20º

Kokedamas are an ancient form of Japanese Bonsai that dates to around 1600 AD. These living planters are made with natural moss, soil, twine, and a plant. They have a sunny disposition and are low maintenance. 

Kokedama plants come with a terra cotta Studio Planter Tray, Greenwash 

They also pair well with our Wrought Iron Planter Stand in Small, the Tall Goblet Terra Cotta Planter shown here, and the Jikoku Wood Base all sold separately. 

Please note that the plants you receive may be smaller and less mature than the ones photographed. They will be eager for growth in their new home!
