I have little to say about this tree except that I think it will become one of my favorite maples. This is a young 7ft specimen that is still quite immature with limited side-branching. The entire tree is young enough that all of the bark takes on a nice red color in winter, a characteristic said to be limited to younger twigs on mature specimens. Yellow flowers are interesting in spring as is the bronze foliage. The foliage matures from bronze to green with a good yellow tone.
