The Amber Ghost Japanese Maple is a stunning small tree with ever-changing foliage colors. The deeply-divided leaves begin in spring as the palest of near-white pink. In summer they are a soft amber-pink, accented by the pronounced green veins. In fall the tree ignites into colors of orange, red and yellow, bringing the garden alive with color. This tree grows steadily to about 15 feet tall, and as much across, making a perfect smaller tree for a shady garden. It is of course perfect for Asian-style gardens, but it fits beautifully into a woodland garden, a modern, minimalist garden, or indeed into any garden at all. It is hardy to zone 5, and it grows best in partially or fully shaded areas in the shade of buildings or large deciduous trees.

  • Beautiful amber-red summer foliage
  • Palest pink spring leaves
  • Vibrant orange, red and yellow fall colors
  • Forms a broad, medium-sized tree
  • Ideal for any style of garden where beauty is admired

Plant your Amber Ghost Japanese Maple in a lightly shaded spot, on the north or east of a building, or under deciduous trees. It needs some afternoon shade to preserve its leaf coloring, and all-day light shade is best in hotter zones. Water frequently when young, and do not allow the roots of mature trees to dry completely. This tree has no pests or diseases, and it is easy to grow if located correctly and watered as needed. Many people think Japanese maples are ‘difficult’, but with a little basic care they are easy to grow and trouble-free. This one is a treasure in any garden, that will only grow in beauty as the years pass.
