The foliage of this low, slow-growing Kawaii Full Moon maple looks fantastic throughout the season. Bright pink-red spring leaves of this Kawaii Japanese Maple become orange-red with green highlights in early summer and bright red and orange in fall. Chartreuse leaf bases and light petioles add to the appeal. In Japanese, the name ‘Kawaii’ means “cute,” not to be confused with the Hawaiin island Kauai. Dissectum.
