Acer shirasawanum ‘Purple Thunder’ is a full moon Japanese maple with dark purple leaves especially in the spring. These leaves fade to a burgundy in the summer. In the fall the leaves change to a bright red. ‘Purple Thunder’ has large leaves with long lobes that fold under themselves. The look is reminiscent of Acer palmatum ‘Trompenburg’ and not as extreme as Acer palmatum ‘Peve Starfish’. Acer shirasawanum ‘Purple Thunder’ will grow into a medium size Japanese maple at maturity.
