This plant is almost identical to 'Osakazuki' except for the autumn colour which is an intense brilliant yellow or orange-yellow, while Osakazuki is crimson. Ichigyoji stands out from other maples because of its large leaves and flamboyant colour. During summer the leaves are green. Each leaf has seven broadly ovate lobes which taper to a sharply pointed tip.
It has an upright broad habit with a round head. At maturity it can attain a height of 7m.
Thrives in full sun or part shade, but produces the best leaf colour in part shade. An easy to grow tree, requiring little or no maintenance. if pruning is required, it should be carried out in the dormant season.
If fertilizing is required, do this in spring before the leaves emerge.
A spectacular addition to any garden and a perfect specimen plant.
