I agree to the above posts....very nice material for $50! To me, though, it looks too short, if that makes any sense. I would grow a new apex a little higher. The nebari is great, the bark is even mature, which is not something that you see on many japanese maples because it just takes so long, and the ramification is perfect!
thanks for the help. It's my first kiyohime and I've always found them very attractive. They are difficult to train in a classical way so I'm just gonna let it grow like it wants to and trim as needed to keep in shape.
