Acer palmatum 'Orange Dream'

Orange Dream Japanese Maple

Unusual and infrequently found in the trade, this Japanese Maple cultivar offers both unique form and color. Its upright habit produces a large shrub or a small tree, either of which boasts bright green bark. Plants also show off a chorus of leaf color in shades of pink to orange to yellow that changes from spring through fall. This selection appreciates afternoon shade. (Iseli Nursery)
