Fiery Colors and Sculptural Shapes in This Unique Japanese Maple
Japanese Maples are known for their striking beauty, but you’ve never seen one as stunning and mesmerizing as the Autumn Moon Japanese Maple
Prized in Japan and rare in the U.S., the Autumn Moon’s bold, yet elegant features will certainly add ornamental value to your yard…
Even small yards can benefit from the arresting appearance – it only grows to 8 ft. and slowly peaks at 15 ft. at maturity.
Create an eye-catching display on your porch or patio by growing the compact tree in a container.
Leaves shaped like Geisha fans – unfurling in spring into 9 pointed, softly-lobed, pleated leaves, the shape suggests classic Japanese aesthetic
Warm tones through spring, summer, and fall – starting out as yellow and turning spring green, the leaves always have layers of pink, orange, and red
Hypnotic fall display – unbelievably bold reds and orange will add fiery warmth to your garden in the fall
Imagine the dramatic contrast you can create by planting this tree near your cool or gray toned evergreens
The branches grow in a nearly horizontal pattern, adding a sculptural display to your garden, yard, or patio.
You’ll turn heads when you add this outstanding tree to your yard.
But don’t be intimidated by the bold colors and shapes, the Autumn Moon is still a Japanese Maple…
While the fascinating layers of colors might add vibrancy to your yard, the classic zen shapes will bring peace and serenity.
This interesting contrast makes this a well-loved tree because it seems to fit in, anywhere you plant.
Don’t miss your chance to plant one of your own.
Even beginner gardeners will find the Autumn Moon easy to grow, with no pests or diseases to consider.
