Shantung Maple is a small densely branched deciduous tree with a rounded crown.  The large triangular 5-lobed leaves emerge reddish-purple and mature to medium green before earning shades of yellow and orange with occasional hues of purple or red in fall. Small non-showy umbels of greenish-yellow flowers bloom mid-spring followed by samaras.  Grows best in rich, moist, slightly acidic well-drained soils.
