The Amber Ghost Japanese Maple is a stunning small tree with ever-changing foliage colors. The deeply-divided leaves begin in spring as the palest of near-white pink. In summer they are a soft amber-pink, accented by the pronounced green veins. In fall the tree ignites into colors of orange, red and yellow, bringing the garden alive with color. This tree grows steadily to about 15 feet tall, and as much across, making a perfect smaller tree for a shady garden. It is of course perfect for Asian-style gardens, but it fits beautifully into a woodland garden, a modern, minimalist garden, or indeed into any garden at all. It is hardy to zone 5, and it grows best in partially or fully shaded areas in the shade of buildings or large deciduous trees.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
