One of the most desired maples, Moonrise has serrated palmate cut leaves that emerge bright red in the spring, aging to green-yellow with an orange blush in the summer. In fall, they display a spectacular variety of red-gold. Its multi-trunked, low-branching habit makes it a colorful specimen for bonsai. It's a favorite in landscaping—exhibiting better sun tolerance than other varieties and providing both color and textural interest as a highly ornamental tree. Also, its smaller size makes it easy to incorporate into a wide range of garden designs. Place in full sun in order to enjoy its full range of colors. Acer shirasawanum 'Munn 001'
