(Golden Shirasawa Maple, Shirasawa Maple)

Shirasawa maple is a small deciduous tree from Japan closely related to fullmoon maple (Acer japonicum) and Japanese maple (Acer palmatum). The cultivar 'Aureum' is distinguished by its striking, yellow-green leaves and its rounded, short-branched habit. The leaves turn gold, orange, or red in fall.

Accepting of most non-alkaline soils in sun or partial shade, it works well as a small lawn or understory tree or in a mixed border.
