A recent transplant from the Japanese horticulture scene that may be among the more eminently desirable specimen plants to emerge in years. Each palmately lobed leaf is marked with a healthy dose of creamy-white mottling against a medium green canvas. In autumn, rich pink and orange-red tones are integrated into the mix. The upright branched plants are strong growing, sun tolerant and offer a bit more cold hardiness when compared to classic Japanese maples. Ultimate size is still unknown though we expect 15-20’ is well within reason.
