Acer shirasawanum 'Jordan'

Acer shirasawanum 'Jordan' has some of the brightest yellow leaves of all Japanese maples. Young leaves sprout with vibrant chartreuse foliage and darken throughout summer. Fall brings on tones of orange and red. 'Jordan' is an upright grower and will reach 8' tall x 4' wide in 10 years. One of the best choices to lighten up or add excellent contrast in the darker corners of the garden. Afternoon protection from hot sun will provide the best and most prolonged colors.

Acer shirasawanum 'Jordan' is an introduction from Gilardelli Nursery of Italy and named after the owner's son.
