The name 'Bihou' means 'beautiful mountain range' in Japanese and it's an apt name for this gorgeous specimen that is a yellow delight from its leaf to its bark. This charming Japanese Maple features chartreuse leaves in spring which deepen in color throughout the summer months. Autumn sees this tree burn bright with amber orange foliage. Finally once the leaves are finished in winter the golden yellow bark shines like a beacon and adds life to the cold and quiet season. It is a petite tree with a powerful color show all year round. The colors are especially intense in colder zones - great news for Northern gardeners! It does best in full sun or partly shaded areas. It can reach heights of 7 to 10 feet and can get between 3 and 6 feet wide. Use it in your landscape for a golden pop of fall color and some beautiful foliage interest.
