We haven't grown this small Japanese maple for long at the JC Raulston Arboretum but we're already very fond of it. It makes a rounded, dwarf tree to about 6'-8' tall. New growth emerges pinkish-red in spring and the red quickly migrates to the outer edges of the yellow-green leaves. The leaves will go green over the summer before turning gold in the fall. Grow in sun or part shade as a small specimen or in a container. It is also prized as a bonsai subject.
