Interesting Notes about Miyabei Maple:

This tree is not easy to propagate, but there are some experiments with grafting that will help to make this plant more available to consumers.  It is on the endangered list in some countries so is definitely one for the collector.  It grows naturally in moist, well-drained soils along riverbanks and the branching sweeps low to the ground.  The tree does produce fruit which are referred to as samaras (or helicopters) that mature in fall.
