Shirasawanum Aureum

(Golden Full Moon Maple) Everyone who sees this tree wants it! Leaves are pale yellow in spring, and darken a bit in summer to a yellow-green. Fall colors are spectacular - gold on the inside of the leaf with red on the lobes of the leaf. This is a very slow-growing difficult-to-grow tree, much prized for containers and bonsai.
