'Ueno yama' forms a mid-sized upright tree reaching 8-12 ft in 10 years.
"Ueno" is a park in Tokyo that was built on a hill often referred to as "Ueno yama" or "Ueno Mountain". 'Ueno homare' means "Pride of Ueno", which is essentially a different way of saying the same thing. 'Ueno homare' is the same tree as Ueno yama'. This park has been a place of celebrating Japanese culture, especially through the blossoms of the flowering cherry trees that reside at Shinobazu Pond and the main pathway for the park. Because of the spring blooming appearance described above, it is our best guess this is why this name was chosen. According to Yano's Book for Maples, this maple was first recorded in Shizen to Bonsai.
