A semi-dwarf, strap-leaved cultivar. Its name means 'with gold threads'. This accurately describes the orange-yellow colour of the leaves. Each medium sized leaf has 5-7 lobes. The foliage emerges vivid green in spring and summer before displaying the spectacular orange autumn colour.
Kinshi tends to have a slightly weeping and slightly domed habit. It can reach 4m x 4m in 20 years. With care, it can be grown in a container. Prefers partial shade.
Pruning is usually unnecessary, as the natural shape is good, but if required, this should be carried out in the dormant season, November to March. If planting in spring or summer, water well for first few months. Use tap water if available.
