With bronze and green leaves that resembles bamboo, this maple has an Asian flare. The habit is compact and mounding, giving a very graceful appearance. We love the long narrow leaves that hold well on the tree, with the branches concealed. The fall color is a golden orange and lasts well into November or December here in our climate. Grows well in a container as well as in the ground, and can be pruned in winter to keep to a specific size.
