The foliage of this low, slow-growing Full Moon maple looks fantastic throughout the season. Bright pink-red spring leaves become orange-red with green highlights in early summer and bright red and orange in fall. Chartreuse leaf bases and light petioles add to the appeal. In Japanese, the name 'Kawaii' means "cute," not to be confused with the Hawaiin island Kauai. Dissectum.

'Kawaii' is a dwarf mounding maple with leaves that emerge orange and red in spring. Summer color is green before changing to deep red and deep orange for fall. Talon Buchholz's wife, Haruko, eyed this plant and uttered "Kawaii", which means cute. This plant certainly lives up to its name, only growing to a 2 foot mound.

One of the most exciting new varieties. Kawaii leaves emerge in spring with beautiful plum-red with orange overtones. As summer progresses the veins turn green creating an orange edged leaf. Kawaii has been proven to be much hardier than most lace leaf palmatum. Leaves are very small, often under 3 inches across. Fall color offers brilliant red and deep orange. The name in Japanese means "cute".
