A rare, small-statured hedge maple that develops into a rounded 20' tall specimen tree with age. In spring, leaves emerge vivid yellow and slowly transition to pale green as the season progresses. Plants are easy to cultivate showing strong tolerance to full sun exposures and reasonably dry soils. Like the species, plants can be pruned back hard as needed. We've found a fine home for one in a mixed border where the wonderful foliage provides excellent color accent in spring and summer.
