A very pale golden-orange spring color sets this maple apart from all others. The orange edge to the leaf tips is very attractive. This color will persist well into summer with the right amount of direct sun. Not too much (foliage can burn) and not too little (foliage turns green). Direct morning sun would probably work best. Golden-orange fall color. Grows 12-24" a year to about 22 '. Developed in Italy in 1991. Zones: USDA 6; Sunset 2-10, 12, 14-24, Alaska-3.
