Acer palmatum P-R
Paul's Variegated (medium)
Large, broad-lobed leaves are dark green with the lobes partially or entirely marked with cream and with the whole leaf tinged pink in spring. Young plants can be shy in producing their variegation.
Peaches and Cream (medium)
A reticulatum cultivar with creamy-white leaves and dark bottle-green veins. In spring, the tips and margins are suffused with a delicate shade of rose-pink which fades in the summer leaving just a pink border. Autumn colour is yellow.
Peve Multicolor (medium)
Small, palmate leaves are speckled with red,pink and cream like a more flamboyant version of Ukigumo. The intensity of the variegation remains for several months before gradually fading to speckled green and cream. Summer growth is pale apple-green with a fine red margin.
Best described as a cross between Beni fushigi and Shindeshojo. This cultivar fills out very quickly with multiple side branching whilst the leaves fade to a speckled light-red or pink-red and cream that is held for most of the summer.
Pink Filigree (dissectum)
Not a true pink but nevertheless an attactive shade of pink-red with contrasting yellow mid veins. Darkening in summer to a purple-red which makes an attractive foil for the summer flush of light rose-pink to red leaves. Autumn changes to orange-red.
A miniature version of Bloodgood. Leaves are a bright pink-red gradually changing to deep red throughout the summer and bright scarlet in autumn.
Pung kil (medium)
A linearilobum form with very long and narrow strap-like leaves that emerge light red. Colour gradually changes to dark red which is held throughout the summer. Young plants tend to be upright growing but gradually spread out with age.
Purple Ghost (medium)
The darkest red of all the reticulatum cultivars. Deep, bright, purple-red leaves are overlaid with black-red viens that gradually fade in the summer as the whole leaf darkens.
Outstanding spring colour of deep shrimp pink when grown in full sun, gradually changing to rust-green with a pink margin. Autumn colour is a glowing pink-red.
Red Dragon (dissectum)
A red-leaved cultivar that will hold its colour throughout the summer. Leaves emerge bright scarlet changing to a deep burgundy red and finally flaming scarlet in autumn.
Red Feathers (dissectum)
Only the slightest of differences distinguish this cultivar from the following. Leaf colour is a slightly lighter red and growth is not quite as vigorous.
Red Filigree Lace (dissectum)
The finest of the dissectum cultivars with deep purple-red leaves changing to bright crimson in autumn. Its delicate appearance belies the vigorous growth a well-grown plant is capable of.
Red Flash (medium)
A cultivar from Italy with vivid red foliage in spring that darkens as it goes into summer. New growth in summer retains the vivd red , contrasting well with the older growth.
Red Pygmy (small)
Long, straplike, five to seven-lobed leaves are a bright, deep red. Young growth, as with all linearilobums, can consist of almost palmate leaves but become finer as the plant ages. In time this cultivar will form a broad, round-topped shrub.
Red Strata (dissectum)
So called because of it's habit of growing very flat with very little drooping. Pink-red leaves in spring hold their colour well if exposed to full sun.
Rilas Red (dissectum)
Very finely cut and feathery deep red leaves almost on a par with Red Filigree Lace. The colour holds well all season and, as with the former, the delicacy of the leaves belies the vigour of young plants with shoots of eighteen inches or more produced in a year.
Rising Sun (medium)
Green leaves in spring and orange tinted summer growth turn brilliant red in the autumn. A good alternative to the ubiquitous Osakazuki.
Roseum Ornatum (dissectum)
A dense and compact cultivar with bronze-red spring colour. Summer growth is a stunning reddish-pink whilst autumn colour is orange and red.
A red witch’s broom. Narrow lobed leaves emerge a light pink-red that darkens with age, turning brilliant red in autumn. Short sturdy branches produce a tight ball-shaped plant.
Leaves open rose-pink in the spring, gradually fading to green with some light pink mottling. Summer growth is orange-red. This cultivar is somewhat lax in habit, producing long, arching shoots with much side branching
Small, narrow lobed and slightly crinkled leaves emerge heavily tinted with orange before gradually fading to light green. Leaves are closely spaced together on thick, stubby shoots, similar to Taroyama.
