Lovely full moon maple with a similar habit to that of Acer circinnatum, the vine maple, but more tolerant of sun -- all but full afternoon sun -- with delicate golden leaves that tint orange then become vibrant orange in autumn, the tree growing to 8-10 ft in time. Decent drainage and regular summer water for best appearance. Frost hardy in USDA zone 6.

One of the most prized of the ''Japanese'' maples, but one of the hardest to get. Somewhat difficult to propagate, it grows slowly and burns in the sun because of the golden foliage, but worth the trouble in a filtered-sun location.

Of the varieties of this large shrub/small tree, one of the "most compelling in the composition of the garden picture is 'Aureum' the leaves of which are a pale golden yellow throughout the season." (Barber ; Phillips). Sun-PSh/Med

A nice specimen of the Golden Full Moon Maple can seem to levitate in the garden with its glowing golden green leaves. 15 ft t & w. Protect from hot sun.
