The leaves emerge coppery red in spring, mature to green (tinged with bronze) in summer, and turn golden-yellow in fall. The gray bark is attractive throughout the year.
This maple does best in moist, well-drained, acidic soil and sun to part shade . It works well as a garden specimen, in containers, or for bonsai.
