Acer shirasawanum 'Aureum'

Golden Fullmoon Maple, Japanese Maple

The Golden Full Moon Maple is highly regarded for its beautifully shaped, colorful leaves. Especially in spring, the small, slow-growing, garden tree displays outstanding, glowing color. Yellow-green leaves brighten shadier spots through summer, before putting on orange and red hues in fall. Protect this maple from intense sunlight. (Iseli Nursery)

Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips for Golden Fullmoon Maple

Prune as needed to keep overall shape of tree. Pruning is best done in mid-winter when branch structure is fully visible and to prevent excessive bleeding that can occur with spring pruning.
