Acer palmatum A
Abigail Rose (small)
An outstanding miniature version of Higasayama with bright-pink, green and cream leaves. Autumn colour of orange-pink and ultimately making a very dense and twiggy plant.
New leaves are bright orange-red with a lighter band of colour along the mid veins of the lobes. Leaves change through orange to yellow with a darker margin and finally yellow and red in the autumn.
Alpine Sunrise (small)
A red witch’s broom with rather large, deeply-divided leaves and producing an upright shrub.
Ao kanzashi (medium)
Small, light green narrow-lobed leaves are edged with pale green-cream with occasional leaves showing some bronze-red markings. Initially upright but spreading with age.
Ao shidare (dissectum)
Not as deeply dissected as some cultivars, the bright green leaves mature to a blue-green shade. Autumn colour is yellow.
A witch’s broom with bright red new growth that matures to a deeper purple-red, whilst shaded leaves revert to bronze-green. Thick stubby shoots produce a low, compact plant in time.
A reticulatum cultivar with attractively marbled leaves. Prominent yellow-green veins are overlaid with a pastel shade of light orange-pink changing to dark red with lighter red veins. Autumn colour is the same as spring but darker.
Asahi zuru (large)
The variegation of this cultivar is predominantly creamy-white with an overlay of pale to mid-pink in spring. Fast growing when young, this will eventually produce a twiggy, spreading plant with the variegation becoming more intense with age.
Butter-yellow leaves in spring with the margins tinted bronze-pink. Leaves eventually darken to a dusky yellow with a second flush in summer of bright golden yellow.
Autumn Fire (dissectum)
A vigorous, semi-erect cultivar with large green leaves not as heavily dissected as some forms. Leaves exposed to full sun are tinted with light rusty red whilst autumn colour is bright scarlet/crimson.
