Claw of the Dragon - Cold Tolerant Full Moon Japanese Maple

Zones 4-9

Acer sieboldianum 'Shoryu-no-tsume' is a brand new cold tolerant full moon maple with a uniquely shaped leaf. "Shoryu-no-tsume' means "claw of the dragon" which is an excellent and fitting description. The green foliage turns to a brilliant shade of red in the fall. We expect 'Shoryu-no-tsume' to reach 10-12 ft in 15 years.


Limited Quantities Available !! As we have over a thousand cultivars of Japanese maples, we often do not have many of each cultivar. We recommend that you buy the Japanese maples you want immediately as we often sell out of certain selections.

Great service! Tree arrived timely and in good shape!

I am very happy with my Claw of the Dragon Japanese Maple and will definitely order again from Mr. Maple!

I love the leaf shape and structure of this maple. It's quite different from other maples. I also love the vibrant spring color. When I really live a particular maple, I'll usually order more. I'm hooked 😉

Claw of the dragon

Great healthy plant, large size!

Loved it, ordered another!!!

I received this one a week or so ago and I liked it so well that I ordered another! I really like the unique claw like leaf shape and no one around has one like this. Most of my maples I like best in spring and early summer before it gets so hot. I also like the height of it as I tend to like upright maples at least in the mid range. I can't wait to see the color in the spring. This one was a nice size one gallon too. My second one is arriving glad I got this beauty. Thanks guys. You are the bomb.😊

A claw that won’t hurt you

Abracadabra, this claw will reach out and grab ya. Not what the common folk would consider the brightest or best color on this one, but the shape, structure, and texture will do more than make up for it. Some maples are just like that and those have become a few of my favorites (see seiun Kaku). It might as will be in the ghost family because when I walk around the yard at night, I feel like there are countless tiny hands reaching for me out of the shadows. Unique fall color as well which can be an almost rusted orange-reds. Although it looks like it’s made of hands, you can relax and keep your hands off of this one since it seems to be a slower grower and can fill smaller spaces without over growing them. So you can have it all … with your claw.
