An impressive recent Japanese maple selection with a name that translates to "beautiful mountain range". Plants are moderate growers developing into upright small trees over time. Foliage is pale green during the growing season evolving to rich, golden-orange in fall. During cool winter months the bark transitions to a bright yellow color that adds much visual contrast and life to the dormant garden. Plants are strong growing yet a bit less cold hardy than most cultivars. Best reserved for warmer parts of Zone 6.
