Looking for a beautiful addition to your garden? Consider the Acer japonicum, also known as the Downy Japanese Maple or Full Moon Maple. Native to Japan, Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, and southern Korea, this small deciduous tree grows up to 15 meters tall with a trunk diameter of 40 cm. The bark is smooth on young trees, becoming rough and scaly on old trees. With rounded, 7-15 cm diameter leaves that turn bright orange to dark red in autumn, this tree produces dark purplish-red flowers in drooping corymbs in early spring. It’s the perfect addition to any garden, and responds well to training and pruning. Order your Acer japonicum today and add a touch of Japanese beauty to your landscape.
