Compact deciduous shrub. One of the more unique colour patterns found in Japanese maples: leaves emerge pink, peach, and creamy-white, maturing creamy-green with dark contrasting veins tinged with rose highlights. Fall foliage turns soft green-gold, then yellow and orange.
Best planted in a well-drained soil with high organic matter. Japanese maples are grown as specimen trees or multi-stemmed plants. Any pruning should be done in summer. Mulch well, but avoid heaping mulch against the stem. Most cultivars need full sun or light afternoon shade.
