Mitsumata Branches have a unique form and branching structure where most times it branches it does so in sets of three. A very useful trait of Mitsumata is that with a little bit of soaking, it becomes quite flexible, allowing it to be shaped. This trait can be used to simply open up the branches for an airier look, or create more dramatic structures. These branches have been stripped of its bark, which is used for the production of fine papers in Asia. Our current stock is a pleasant off-white. The bark of Mitsumata (Edgeworthia chrysantha) has been used in Japan for making paper for centuries. With an attractive form and fragrant flowers that bloom in the early spring, Mitsumata is starting to appear in American gardens.

The first picture shows six Mitsumata Branches that have been trimmed. The second shows Mitsumata Branches displayed with stems of fresh Dendrobium Orchids. The third shows Mitsumata Branches shaped into a cocoon-like form to envelope florescent light fixtures. The fourth picture shows a display of Mitsumata Branches with hanging votives (please note that only LED lights should be used with branches). The hanging votives were semi-handmade.
