Acer palmatum L-M
Lemon Chiffon (dissectum)
Light green leaves have a wash of yellow in the spring. Later growth is heavily tinted with bright rusty-orange on the lobes. Autumn sees a change to dark yellow to orange, sometimes streaked with red.
Lemon Lime Lace (dissectum)
New leaves are pale lemon-yellow maturing to lime green in summer. Summer growth provides the contrasting lemon and lime, turning to orange in autumn.
Bright crimson red leaves and vigorous growth when young. Not a true upright, this variety has more of the habit of a weeping willow, growing up and then cascading down.
Little Princess (small)
Also known as Mapi no machihime. Leaves are brown-red when emerging and fade to mid-green with bright brown-red margins.
Green leaves are heavily tinted with red when unfolding which gradually fades to reveal pink, orange and cream variegation occupying part or all of a lobe or sometimes a whole leaf. The variegation in young plants is often slow to appear. In summer the colour changes to pale creamy-yellow on green.
Manyo no sato (medium)
Very similar to Beni shi en but slightly darker overall with more prominent markings and bright red in autumn.
Meiho nishiki (medium)
A variegated cultivar with green leaves heavily blocked with yellow, sometimes covering an entire leaf and gradually changing to creamy white. The summer growth is tinted with rusty-red.
Mikawa yatsubusa (small)
Mid green leaves are spaced closely together on short, stubby shoots to give the perfect slow growing dwarf maple. Leaves overlap to give the appearance of roof shingles. The ideal plant for the very patient gardener!
Mizuho beni (medium)
Similar in colour and growth to Katsua, this cultivar has orange-yellow leaves in the spring with dark pink margins. An important differance between the two, however, is that Mizuho beni comes into growth a few weeks later
A narrowly upright and twiggy shrub with stalkless leaves. Individual, heavily-serrated leaf segments join together on the twigs giving the plant a feathery look. Tinted red in spring with striking pink summer growth, the leaves change to green then yellow in autumn.
Wine-red leaves darken to purple-red and become almost black-red in summer. Second flush in the summer on this compact, upright cultivar is fiery red that gradually fades to return in autumn.
A slow growing, red leaved cultivar with attractive, narrow lobed leaves.
Murasaki kiyohime (small)
Leaves are light green when unfolding and turn to dark green with purple-red margins.
