Acer palmatum 'Gold Digger' Yellow Coral Bark Japanese Maple
Acer palmatum 'Gold Digger'
Rare Gold Digger Yellow Coral Bark Japanese Maple
AREA 51 COLLECTION™ PLANTS THAT ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD
'Gold Digger' is a MrMaple introduction from the Area 51 Collection. 'Gold Digger' has great winter interest of light yellow towards the base of the tree with more orange toward the tips on the latest growth.
The leaves on the new growth are often a peach color that fades to the tips turning darker red. The leaf matures to a solid green. During the summer, the bark is a light yellow where this selection gets its name, 'Gold Digger'. Fall color on the leaves typically starts out with yellow and can mature to a bold red. We expect 'Gold Digger' to get to 8-10 feet in 15 years.
