Description An attractive small tree with lacy leaves that turn gold to crimson in autumn. A good selection for courtyards and small gardens where there is protection from full sun.

Branches Ascending
Mature Size 4 x 4m    
Uses Like the other Japanese Maples, this tree is suitable for smaller gardens and courtyards with protection from full sun. Works well as a feature tree or in group plantings.
