Description: 'Yatsabusa Kiyohime has small green leaves on a very tidy small plant. It would be hard to know whether to call this a shrub or a tree. A plant of ‘Kiyohime’, which we have planted in the garden across from the office, is now about 12 feet across and just slightly over 3 feet high making a very nice low mounded small tree. ‘Kiyohime’ is an excellent plant that we would recommend for foundation plantings or anywhere that a low growing shrub is necessary. You really have to see this one to believe how nice it is.
