Acer japonicum ‘Giant Moon’ in November

(Initial version 26 Feb 2015)
We acquired this for its uniquely extra large leaf size. The leaf shape is of typical japonicum maple leaf shape. It turned out that the fall colour was a spectacular brilliant scalet red. It was probably one of the most brillian fall colours of any trees that I have seen so far. I hope it survives its first winter which encounters a record prolonged extremely cold temperature.
