Acer 'aureum'



It will take at least ten years for it to reach six feet tall, and it builds character as it ages. Light or dappled shade is best for this maple as afternoon sun will scorch its leaves and deep shade will turn the leaves too green. Plant tree in area protected from cold or strong winds as exposure can cause leaves to turn brown. This maple tolerates our acidic soils but good soil preparation with plenty of organic material will insure your tree thrives.
