Positive Todd_Boland On Jan 1, 2005, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This Matsumurae Group maple has green summer foliage but the fall colours are quite spectacular. The base colour is golden yellow but with pink, red and orange tones. The really unique feature is the bark. The bark is deep green with white stripes, much like the so-called 'snakebark' maples.
