||8-10'H x 6-8'W
||Green, tinged in pink, turning cream/yellow/pink in summer.
||Beautiful pecimen tree for cottage, patio or city gardens. Suitable for containers.
||Full sun/part shade. Important to think about light exposure: Too much light and/or heat can damage delicate leaves. Too little light, and some of the more colorful varieties will take on an attractive greenish tone, but not the brilliant fall red/purple colors. For best color, most maples need a location with part day's sun.
||Moist, organically rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Prefers consistent moisture: Mulch will help retain moisture. Don't let soil dry out, nor become waterlogged.
