    Description taken from Maple Ridge Nursery website.

    Acer shirasawanum ‘Mikado’ is a shorter growing full moon Japanese maple with large, rounded leaves. These leaves emerge in the spring with a striking plum red color. Green and bronze tones begin to creep into the center of the leaves come summertime, giving the leaves a very attractive color even in the hotter months. ‘Mikado’ then turns a brilliant red in the fall.

    Purchased and planted before leafing out in March 2022. Pictures taken mid July 2022. It was more of a plum color a month ago.
