Acer palmatum 'Moonfire'
Size: see below
Growth Habit: 20 foot, upright, rounded canopy
USDA Zone: 5-9
Exposure: Filtered to full sun
Growing Conditions: moist, well-drained soils
Comments: Rivaling the well-known 'Bloodgood' for its long-lasting season of purple-red color, 'Moonfire' will cast an iridescent glow to the garden when sun plays on its leaves. In fall leaves turn crimson-red. A sure-fire and durable cultivar. Photo taken in late October.
