Quick Overview:

?Green Cascade? is a small mounded tree with a weeping habit. It typically grows to only 4-5′ tall and to 6-8′ wide over the first 10 years. Finely-dissected emerald green leaves (to 6? across) develop excellent yellow, orange and red fall colors. It often grows in a multi-trunked form. It is native to mountainous areas of Japan, Manchuria and Korea. It features rounded, palmate, almost fern-like, medium green leaves (to 3-6? across) which are deeply divided (approximately 1/3 of distance to the leaf base) into 7-11 acuminate, toothed and cut, ovate to lance-shaped lobes. Leaves turn yellow and red in fall. Each rounded leaf purportedly resembles a full moon, hence the common name. Small purplish-red flowers in pendulous corymbs appear in early spring (April) before the leaves. Flowers are followed by winged samaras (to 1? long) which ripen in late summer to early fall. Although somewhat similar in appearance to Japanese maple (Acer palmatum), full moon maple has larger leaves with more lobes per leaf and downy leaf stems.
