This taxon is of, as yet, unknown parentage. It has been treated as a selection of Acer davidii, A. × conspicuum, A. forrestii or A. pectinatum. Bark reddish purple (Armitage et al. 2014). 

 

USDA Hardiness Zone 6-7

RHS Hardiness Rating H5

Having been assigned to numerous taxa by different individuals, ‘Mozart’ is best attributed to none of these pending further investigation. However, A. × conspicuum can be ruled out on account of it being grown from seed collected in the wild in China, by Peter Vanlaerhoven (Armitage et al. 2014). It has reddish purple young bark and leaves that colour butter yellow in autumn (Armitage et al. 2014).
