    An introduction by Mendocino Maples; from their website

    Mendocino Momiji is an exciting new cultivar that we are releasing into the trade after considerable evaluation for close to 10 years.

    Mendocino Momiji is in the matsumurae group with deeply divided medium sized leaves. Leaves emerge in spring a wonderful peachy orange color with purplish petioles. As summer progresses the leaves pick up a blush of red on the light green leaves. Fall color is intense orange and red.

    A wonderful small growing tree mounding to about 5’ by 6' in 10 years. It is hardy and can handle medium intense sun.

    Mendocino Momiji emerged as a seedling from a parent scolopendrofolium tree.

    Quite cute thus far.
