Bonsai Comments:

Montpellier Maple is a rare maple variety popular with bonsai enthusiasts for its distinctive appearance.
Its three-lobed, obtuse leaves are naturally small and easily reduced. The bonsai's scrubby ornate bark and good response to bonsai techniques are a good combination.
The spring leaves are a glossy dark green dense foliage followed by a brilliant yellow and orange color in the fall. Acer monspessulanum can withstand warmer climates and full sun, with partial shade in midsummer better than other maples.
