  • Premna japonica is a deciduous tree native to Japan, China, and Taiwan.
  • It is not a true maple, but gets its common name "musk maple" from the musky fragrance of its leaves when crushed.
  • It has small, maple-like leaves that turn yellow in fall before dropping.
  • The tree also produces small white flowers followed by black berry-like fruits.
  • Musk maples develop an interesting gnarled trunk and branching pattern over time, making them desirable for bonsai.
  • Their small leaves allow them to be trained into compact bonsai specimens.
  • As a bonsai subject, musk maples are known for developing nice twigging and ramification with age.
  • Their flexible branches allow for extensive wiring and shaping.
  • Musk maples are relatively fast-growing compared to other bonsai species, developing into nice bonsai in a reasonable timeframe.
