A unique specimen with an upright habit and bright orange-yellow foliage with orange margins when the leaves emerge. With maturity, the foliage ages to yellow and then to gold in the fall.
Best planted in a well-drained soil with high organic matter. Japanese maples are grown as specimen trees or multi-stemmed plants. Any pruning should be done in summer. Mulch well, but avoid heaping mulch against the stem. Most cultivars need full sun or light afternoon shade.
