Japanese Maple is a species of tree naturally growing in Japan, Korea and China. Many varieties have been bred and extended to many countries around the world.
They are deciduous shrubs or small trees. It grows to 6–10 m, rarely 16 m. It often grows as undergrowth in deciduous forests. It can grow as a multi-strain.
'Summer Gold' is a slow growing maple (15-20 cm per year). This cultivar, unlike most Japanese maples, is perfectly tolerated by the hot and hot summer sun and high temperatures. The leaves are five to seven lobed, bright greenish yellow to orange with a salmon tinge, which disappears with the coming summer, leaving only a red leaf rim and red twigs. In summer the color ripens to light green, but on the most sunny parts of the shrub the leaves are golden yellow. With the advent of autumn, the leaves gradually turn into orange, pale scarlet to garish crimson. Only light-leaved maples can color so richly and beautifully.
Demands: Protected shaded habitats with sufficiently moist, permeable, humous soil. This cultivar, unlike most Japanese maples, is perfectly tolerated by the hot and hot summer sun and high temperatures. Can withstand frosts up to -27 °. But hates dry, hot place. It is recommended to bet close to the pond or in the summer to grow a lot. The roots should be mulched.
