Originally found as a seedling of Acer shirasawanum 'Aureum', 'Autumn Moon' is a beautiful tree in it's own right. Growing upwards of 20' tall and 12-15' wide, this tree leafs out in spring with a burnt orange colour and this can last through the summer. Recommended to be sited in full sun or very high shade for best colour. In fall, the leaves are orange and red. Trees located in shade will have more green to yellow tones.
