Acer tenuifolium 
Rare Full Moon Japanese Maple

Zones 5-9

Acer tenuifolium, sometimes listed as Acer shirasawanum ssp. tenuifolium, is a species of maple to Japan that is in section Palmata. It was amazing walking around in the wild in Japan. Some of the photos are of Acer tenuifolium growing naturally at Lake Chuzenji at Nikko National Park in Japan that were taken by our good friend Agustin Coello-Vera. When Matt and I walked around Lake Chuzenji, it was spectacular to see these not-so-common Japanese maples growing in the wild in Japan. 

Acer tenuifolium makes a great mid-sized upright maple reaching 8-10 ft in 10 years. The green full moon-like leaves are slightly more serrated than Acer shirasawanum. The green leaves turn to bright yellow and orange in the fall. Late fall colors may attain some red colors. Acer tenuifolium is a delight and is fairly uncommon in the nursery trade.

The Acer tenuifolium currently offered are grafted onto Acer palmatum.
