The Ed Wood Full Moon Maple is a dramatic and unusual member of the large family of Japanese maples. It is renowned for its large leaves, which can be 6 inches wide and deep. Although they are divided in narrow fingers like the other Japanese maples, they are broader, and the overall effect is like an open fan – or the full moon. This variety is notable for its healthy, vigorous growth and dramatic palette of fall color. It welcomes the end of the growing season with a fireworks display of yellow, orange and red that is remarkable for it every-changing beauty. This tree can be used in an Asian-themed garden, or an ordinary garden too. It makes a lovely lawn specimen for a small garden, or it is beautiful planted in beds in a larger one. It will grow into an upright, rounded tree between 15 and 20 feet tall, and the same size across. You can also choose to prune it into a narrower shape, while still keeping its great beauty.

  • Dramatic large-leafed type of Japanese maple
  • Leaves resemble an open, pleated fan or a full moon
  • Forms an wide, upright tree to 20 feet tall and broad
  • Spectacular fall display of yellow, orange and red
  • Hardier than most other Japanese maples

Plant your Ed Wood Full Moon Maple in a sunny location in cooler zones, and provide more shade in warmer areas. Shade from the hot afternoon sun is ideal. Grow your tree in any well-drained garden soil, and use mulch to feed it and conserve moisture. This rapid-growing, vigorous tree will soon become a wonderful specimen, and if you take care to water it during very hot and dry weather, this is a very easy tree to grow – it has no significant pests or diseases and grows well in a wide range of conditions.
