If you have a smaller garden, or partially shaded areas of a larger one, then the Fernleaf Full Moon Maple is a tree you should have. This relative of the Japanese maples is hardier in cool areas than most Japanese maples, less likely to suffer summer leaf-scorch, and blessed with some of the most spectacular fall colors of gold and crimson that you will see on any tree. Its smaller size, reaching no more than ten feet, means it fits perfectly into a small space, or even a large container. Its large, rounded leaves, divided into deep fingers, give it exactly the exotic feel needed for an Asian influenced garden, but it fits equally well into a more natural garden with other trees and shrubs. It grows into an upright, but rounded small tree, as broad as it is tall, and needs no special care to grow into the favorite tree in your garden.

  • Beautiful round-leafed type of Japanese maple
  • Forms an wide, upright tree to 10 feet tall and broad
  • Most spectacular fall colors of gold and crimson of any tree
  • Easily grown in ordinary garden conditions
  • The perfect specimen tree for a smaller garden

Plant your Fernleaf Full Moon Maple in a sunny location, or a partially shaded one. In warmer areas, some shade from afternoon sun is ideal. It will grow well in most garden soils, but it appreciated plenty of organic material added during planting, and regularly as mulch. Keep your tree well watered in the early years, and do not let it become too dry during the summer months. Over the years it will grow at a moderate pace, charming you in all seasons with its graceful twigs, its beautiful rounded leaves and its dramatic fall colors.
