Acer Shirasawanum Moonrise

Acer shirasawanum Moonrise, commonly known as Moonrise Japanese Maple, is a stunning ornamental tree renowned for its exquisite foliage and graceful form. It is a cultivar of the species Acer shirasawanum, native to Japan. This lovely tree is characterized by its unique leaves that showcase a beautiful blend of colours. In spring, the leaves emerge with hues of reddish-purple, gradually transitioning to shades of green with subtle pink undertones as the season progresses. During autumn, the tree transforms once more, displaying a spectacular array of golden-orange and fiery-red foliage, making it a breathtaking centrepiece in any landscape. This cultivar typically grows as a small to medium-sized tree. Its attractive, rounded canopy and slow growth rate make it a popular choice for smaller gardens, patios, or as an accent tree in larger landscapes.

The Moonrise Japanese Maple prefers partial shade to full sun exposure and thrives in well-draining slightly acidic soil. With proper care and a suitable growing environment, this magnificent tree will provide year-round visual interest and beauty, making it a beloved addition to gardens and landscapes across the world.
