What are everyone’s thoughts on Osakazuki? Growth habit, sun/heat tolerance and spring/fall color? After much deliberation, I’ve decided on planting Osakazuki in the full sun area of my front yard. I am planning on planting a #5 gallon Osakazuki. It will get tall in 10-20 years and create shade for my little front and the fall color is absolutely amazing... it was a standout in Charlie’s Amazing Maples YouTube videos out of all his maples in my opinion.
