Acer shirasawanum 'Sensu' Full Moon Japanese Maple
Acer shirasawanum 'Sensu’
'Sensu’ Full Moon Japanese Maple
‘Sensu’ is a superb full moon maple selection that leafs out with orange to bronze tones on a larger deeply divided leaf. The leafs mature to green by late spring, turning orange to red in the fall. ‘Sensu’ may reach around 8 ft in height in 10 years.
Acer shirasawanum 'Sensu’ is a hybrid upright Japanese maple that was found as a chance seedling from Acer shirasawanum ‘Palmatifolium’ by plant breeder Jim Baggett at Oregon State University. Jim gave Talon Buchholz this tree under the code name ‘JB-50’, which it is still sometimes found in the nursery trade. Talon Buchholz gave this full moon maple the official name of ‘Sensu’, which is Japanese for “moving fan” and introduced it into cultivation.
