General tree description
Acer cappadocicum 'Aureum' is a medium-sized tree (up to 20 metres tall) with a broad, rounded crown. It has broad, five-lobed leaves, which when young are first bright red, then yellow with orange or red margins. They fade to green in summer, and turn yellow again in autumn. Small yellow flowers appear in early spring.
