Positive Todd_Boland On Mar 4, 2005, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This Dissectum Group maple has bright green spring and summer foliage but turns golden yellow in autumn. The twigs and older stems are quite green, with distinctive white striations. The leaves are a little coarser than most Dissectums but this does nothing to detract from the beauty of this cultivar. It has the typical mounding habit of most Dissectums and will generally stay around 3 m in height.
