The Golden Bark Japanese Maple is one of a select group of Japanese Maple trees grown as much for their winter interest as for their beautiful form and foliage. When the leaves end their fall display of golds, yellows and oranges, they drop to reveal twigs of a unique golden apricot tone that lasts through the winter, bringing color to those gray days. Older branches retain this color, so if trimmed to expose some branches you can enjoy the striking bark of this tree in summer too. It only grows 7 to 10 feet tall, which makes it ideal for smaller gardens, small spaces in big ones, in courtyards, or in planters and pots.

  • Striking winter twigs of golden apricot
  • Perfect small tree for smaller spaces
  • Powerful fall colors of gold, yellow and orange
  • Grows well in partially shaded areas
  • Great choice for containers or bonsai growing

Grow the Golden Bark Japanese Maple in full sun in cooler zones, and in partial shade in warmer ones. Afternoon shade is especially beneficial, although the slightly broader leaves of this tree do not burn as easily as those of some other varieties do. The soil should be moist and well-drained. Enrich the earth with organic material and mulch the ground over the roots to conserve moisture and keep the soil cool – conditions this tree loves. It normally has no problems with pests or diseases, and it is easy to grow once you find the right location and soil for it.
