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 sun or 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 on a terrace. It grows from zones 5 to 7 and this special tree will become a loved feature in any garden.

  • Beautiful broad leaves are golden yellow with red edges in spring
  • Gorgeous fall colors of orange and red
  • Graceful small tree to 15 feet, with a broad form
  • Grows well in full sun or partial shade
  • Ideal focal point in shady gardens, or as a container tree

The Golden Full Moon Japanese Maple grows in most soils, and prefers moist, well-drained soil enriched with organic material. Mulch the roots to conserve water and gently provide nutrients at the same time. If attention is paid to watering, this is an easy tree to grow, with no pests or diseases, and it needs no trimming or training to develop its beautiful, broad rounded form. This very special tree is a sought-after form of the remarkable Japanese maples, with a unique charm that will make your garden a wonderful place.
