Quick Overview:

The Golden Full Moon Japanese Maple is a striking and beautiful small tree, reaching 15 feet tall, and the same across. The leaves are broader than most Japanese Maples, with 9 to 13 shallow lobes, and in spring they are yellow with a thin red edge. They turn chartreuse-green in summer, and brilliant oranges and reds in fall. Trees develop small red flowers and clusters of red maple keys in winter. This is an ideal tree for partial shade, and the perfect focal point in a woodland garden. Use it to complete your Asian-themed garden, as a tree on a small lawn area, or you can grow it in a large container.
