Acer palmatum B

Baby Lace (dissectum)
Unique amongst the dissectum group in being the only witch’s broom form. The small leaves are rusty brick-red in spring fading to greenish-bronze. Autumn colour is red but, during the course of the season, several flushes of growth will be produced of new pink-red over bronze.

Baldsmith (dissectum)
Bright orange-red leaves in spring gradually change to bronze-green/apricot with a rusty pink margin. Finely-dissected leaves but a vigorous grower.

Barry Bergman (dissectum)
A slow-growing, compact cultivar with rust red-leaves that later turn bronze-green and orange-red in autumn.

Beni fushigi (medium)
A dense, twiggy shrub with small, narrow-lobed leaves that emerge a vibrant pink-red gradually changing to red with dark red margins. Second flush in the summer is pink-red on a background of older dark red leaves.

Beni hoshi (small)
Bright red leaves in the spring change to green in the summer with the second flush opening deep red over a dark green bckground. The closely spaced, star-shaped leaves change to yellow and orange in the autumn.

Beni kawa (large)
An upright but eventually spreading cultivar similar to Sango kaku, the Coral Bark maple. Differences are a deeper red bark colour in winter and yellow-tinted leaves in spring and autumn.

Beni kumo no su (dissectum)
A recent American cultivar with red leaves almost as fine as Red Filigree Lace. The lobes are slightly broader though and give the plant a more ‘frillier’ appearance.

Beni maiko (medium)
Fire-engine red crinkled leaves in spring gradually change to pink-red. Summer colour is reddish-green with darker main veins with autumn seeing a pink-red margin gradually covering the entire leaf.

Beni otake (large)
A vigorous, upright linearilobum cultivar with bright deep purple-red leaves that hold their colour well. The open-layered branches are furnished with leaves that are not as narrow as other members of this group.

Beni schichihenge (medium)
An upright, vase-shaped cultivar that becomes twiggy with age. Green leaves are margined with pink-orange, paler where leaves are shaded. Older wood will have leaves almost completely pink-orange with just a slight amount of cream and green variegation. Autumn colours are two-tone red.

Beni shi en (medium)
Spring colour of this cultivar can best be described as a smoky rose-red darkening to a light purple. The long, slender lobes have creamy-gold margins and change through pink to gold in the autumn.

Beni shidare Tricolor (dissectum)
A vigorous, variegated cultivar with a base colour of bronzy-red overlaid with pink, cream and white.

Beni shigitatsu sawa (medium)
Also known as Aka shigitatsu sawa. A reticulated cultivar with dusky yellow-green leaves with prominent darker veins. Leaves gradually develop a heavy tint of pink-red with contrasting dark green veins.

Beni tsukasa (medium)
Outstanding spring colour of pale apricot and candyfloss- pink with shaded portions of the plant mottled blush-pink and cream. Summer colours change through mottled pink/green to green, turning orange and red in autumn.

Beni tsukasa shidare (dissectum)
Reddish-brown leaves are preceded by bright dark red leaves in spring with autumn colour of deep orange.

Beni zuru (medium)
Bright orange-pink leaves with contrasting orange-yellow midribs that hold their colour well. New growth emerges predominantly pink.

Berrima Bridge (dissectum)
A vigorous cultivar with bright green leaves. As the season progresses, new growth is heavily marked along the margins with bright pink-red, whilst autumn colours are red and orange.

Berry Dwarf (small)
A very dense, bushy cultivar with light green leaves in spring that darken with age whilst new growth in summer is tinted with orange. Unusually for such a small plant, the leaves are relatively large.

Bewley's Red (dissectum)
A recent introduction from Australia and the first truly upright red leaved dissectum. To achieve this distinction it must be grown in full sun.

Brocade (dissectum)
A red leaved cultivar but this time a shade of soft, tomato-red. A warm bronze in the summer and orange and crimson in the autumn.
