Acer shirasawanum Autumn Moon

Autumn Moon Japanese Maple

  • Beautiful multi-chromatic appeal
  • Broad but delicately cut foliage
  • Hot orange fall color
  • Hardier, more vigorous and more heat tolerant than other Acers
  • Beautiful specimen
Just as the full autumn moon glows with bold pink, red and orange hues, Acer 'Autumn Moon' shines three seasons a year with a similar multi-chromatic appeal. New foliages emerges in the spring a bright chartreuse green shade with captivating rust and pink tones on broad but delicately cut foliage. The summer sun ingrains vivid orange colors firmly into the maturing leaves for a fantasticly different show of color. Finally, as fall and cooler weather appear, deep, rich oranges and reds finish off the season with an explosion of color hot enough to parallel any flow of molten lava. Hardier, more vigorous and more heat tolerant than the similar looking Acers like 'Aureum', 'Autumn Moon' will enchant you year after year and make an unforgettable specimen for a sunny spot.
