The Ruby Full Moon Maple is a special form of Japanese maple known for its rounded, full, fan-shaped leaves. The early growth is very dark red, highlighted with soft silver hairs, and turning bright red for the spring. Summer leaves are bronzy-green with red margins, turning into truly spectacular fall colors of red, purple, and orange. Tiny red maple keys decorate the shiny green winter twigs. This specimen tree grows to around 10 feet tall and 5 feet wide, eventually becoming taller and fuller. Grow it as a specimen in a bed or a courtyard, or in a container. It looks perfect in woodland settings, and in Japanese-themed gardens.

  • Gorgeous very dark-red new growth
  • Bright red in spring, bronzy red margins in summer
  • Powerful fall shades or red, orange, and purple
  • Unique fan-shaped rounded leaves with many divisions
  • Very special specimen, yet not hard to grow

The Ruby Full Moon Maple is hardy in all moderate zones, and it grows in full sun or partial shade, appreciating afternoon shade in hotter areas. It grows best in rich, moist, well-drained soil, and it is not drought tolerant. In drier areas grow it in a container to ensure it always has moist soil. It is normally free of pests or diseases, and it grows easily with the right light and soil conditions. Pruning is not required, but it can be done for form and effect.
