Jordan is a moderately growing maple that provides an alternative to the Aureum in the form of larger leaves like Aureum and the lime green color coveted by maple lovers. Jordan’s popularity strives from how much faster it grows that Aureum. Some online sellers and garden centers advise that Jordan can handle more sun without burning as Aureum would. Jordan grows more upright without long side branches so it is narrow – Aureum grows as wide as it is tall.
To test the amount of sun Jordan could handle I tried growing Jordan in all day sun here in Washington State. We do not have exceptionally hot summers, with usually 10 days over 90. I gave it three summers to get established, but Jordan’s top leaves still burned. So we would not recommend all day sun, but shade in the afternoon. I guess for me the best look for this maple is late summer and early fall when each leaf is like a stained glass window.
