Comments: This is a dwarf maple that produces a globe form when mature. It is a popular selection for bonsai work. Young leaves are bright green with red edges. Autumn color can be yellow to gold. Provide protection from hot, drying winds in the summer, especially in the South. Grows best in a moist, well-drained soil.
