Fjellheim is a maple that arose from a witches'-broom growing on Sango kaku, the Coral Bark Japanese maple. Hence, it forms a compact bush like tree much like the popular Coral Bark but smaller. With the same wonderful bark color and yellow Fall color as Sango kaku, Fjellheim will remain a dwarf growing only 4-5 feet or so. It is great for the small garden or containers.
Fjellheim can be difficult to grow in wet areas - be sure to have good drainage in your soil if you intend to grow this wonderful maple. Consider Aka kawa hime and Winter Flame which are very similar and much hardier plants.
