Arakawa Rough Bark Maple- Pre-Bonsai (#677)
Arakawa is also known as the rough bark maple because it has a unique corky bark. The rough bark shows up after several years of growth and become quite prominent as the maple ages. These trees are popular amongst bonsai lovers for their unique bark which develops even when dwarfed. In Japanese, “ara” means “rough” and “kawa” means “bark” or “river”, (the Arakawa River in Japan empties into the Tokyo bay). This is a 4-5 year two gallon plant with minimal grafting scars.
