The Weeping Full Moon Maple is a rare and unique Japanese maple that forms a broad mound of weeping branches, reaching 4 feet within 10 years, and maturing at 6 to 8 feet. It will spread outwards 8 or even 10 feet across. The intricate branching is beautiful in winter, and in spring the leaves are bright chartreuse, turning rich green through summer. In fall they turn spectacular and vibrant shades of golds, oranges and reds – a truly wonderful sight. The leaves are divided into many very narrow threads, radiating out like fingers and repeatedly dividing into lacy patterns. A truly wonderful specimen tree, perfect for Asian-themed gardens, by water or in a beautiful container.

  • Wonderful broad, spreading form to 6 feet tall
  • Large, deeply-dissected lacy leaves
  • Bright green leaves in spring and summer
  • Spectacular fall colors of gold, orange and flaming red
  • Grows well in a large planter or pot.

Plant your Weeping Full Moon Maple in full sun in cooler zones, or in morning sun and afternoon shade everywhere. It grows best in soil that is rich and moist, but well-drained, and water new plants frequently. Established trees have some resistance to short periods of drought. This tree is rarely troubled by pests or diseases, and needs no pruning or trimming to keep its unique cascading form.
