Japanese Full Moon Maple

There is a beautiful specimen of Full Moon Maple (Acer japonicum) at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I love the way the colors are changing on the foliage, with a deep red around the edge, subtly turning coppery and yellowy as it spreads into the still green leaves. Look closely at the leaves and you'll see a whole spectrum of hues in between the delicate veins.
