Acer shirasawanum 'Jordan' is a distinctive, narrow, and upright tree, a unique cultivar of the Full Moon Maple. It's renowned for its striking golden-yellow foliage that shimmers in the light, bringing a vibrant splash of color to any garden, particularly in spring and autumn when the colors are most intense.

This tree typically reaches a height of about 10 to 15 feet, making it a compact and manageable addition to landscapes, perfect for smaller gardens or spaces where a broader canopy isn't suitable. Its upright growth habit, combined with its colorful presence, allows it to serve as an exquisite focal point or a complementary accent within diverse landscapes.

The leaves of 'Jordan' are particularly notable for their beauty; they exhibit a delicate and intricate texture, displaying a refined serration on the margins. In addition to its attractive foliage, the tree offers a subtle yet enchanting display of red flowers in spring, adding another layer of visual interest.

Resilient and relatively low-maintenance, Acer shirasawanum 'Jordan' is well-suited to a variety of soil types and conditions, although it prefers a sheltered location to protect its foliage from harsh winds and extreme sun, which can scorch the leaves. It's a radiant embodiment of horticultural elegance, combining form, texture, and color to create visual harmony within the garden.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
