I went to the nursery with the intent of finding an Autumn Moon Japanese Maple but fell in love with this one instead. I also fell in love with the price, which was about $100 less than the Autumn Moon! The rusty leaf edges complement the stain color on our deck railing, which is a nice surprise. It’s only 4 feet tall at the moment and is medium growing, so we should have a few years of enjoyment before we need to transplant it into the yard.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
